For some, the best way to arrange your trip will be having your vehicle relocated to the other end of the track. Working with the Blackball Co-op, we have a small group of vetted drivers who can relocate your vehicle while you enjoy your Paparoa Track adventure.
To provide you with peace of mind at the Punakaiki end of the track, we have sourced private parking near the end of the track. The $10 we charge for this private parking goes directly to the land owners. This is part of our commitment to supporting the Punakaiki community.
Please note we require at least 72 hours notice for vehicle relocation bookings. Vehicles need to be in place by 12:30pm on day of relocation.
|Blackball to Punakaiki||$138.00 + $10*|
|Smoke-ho Car park to Punakaiki||$138.00 + $10*|
|Greymouth to Punakaiki||$138.00 + $10*|
The Paparoa Track begins at its southern end from Smoke-ho Car park. It is worth noting that Smoke-ho Car park is approximately 6km drive from Blackball township itself. When booking your vehicle relocation, please indicate whether you would like your relocation to be from Smoke-ho Car park (i.e. where the track begins) or from Blackball (i.e. the township nearest the track).
^Price applies for any vehicle relocation booked and paid for before 31st Dec 2021.
*Private parking in Punakaiki is $10. (This is passed on by us, directly to the land owners in Punakaiki.)
If you book a Greymouth to Punakaiki vehicle relocation, this includes free secure parking at our Greymouth Depot until the day you finish the track. Your vehicle will then be relocated to the private parking location in Punakaiki.
Once your booking has been confirmed, we will provide details for our lockbox pick up locations, and instructions about where you will find your vehicle after your trip on the track.
If you have a rental vehicle, there are a few considerations that need to be made…
