The Paparoa National Park is a fascinating part of New Zealand offering diverse and beautiful scenery. The surrounding townships are rich with history and heroic stories of those who first settled here and those that followed in their footsteps. The Paparoa Track crosses the Paparoa Mountain Range from Blackball to Punakaiki and can be ridden or walked in either direction. There is plenty to see and do to complete your West Coast adventure in the surrounding townships.
Nestled at the foothills of the Paparoa Ranges, Blackball is a gateway to the Paparoa National Park. A great place to stay the night before you ride or walk the Paparoa Track.
