Paparoa National Park

Luxuriant coastal forest, limestone cliffs and canyons, caves and underground streams, and an absolutely spectacular coastline, are all packed into one national park.

Established in 1987, Paparoa National Park is perhaps most famous for the Pancake Rocks and blowholes of Dolomite Point, near the settlement of Punakaiki.



Paparoa National Park is located in the northern part of the South Island’s West Coast, alongside State Highway 6, between the towns of Westport and Greymouth.
