The “West Coast” region is an area never more than 40 kilometers wide between mountain and ocean. It contains a geological wonderland of limestone forms, coal measures, and other curious rocks and is the only region in New Zealand where high-quality bituminous coal is found. The region offers a rich variety of geological and biological landscapes. The Westport field station is located in the Westport township.
