Westport field station

The “West Coast” region is an area never more than 40 kilometers wide between mountains and the Tasman Sea. It contains a geological wonderland of limestone forms and other curious rocks and is the only region in New Zealand where high-quality bituminous coal is found. The region also offers a rich variety of ecological habitats.

The Westport field station is located in the Westport township.
