About the neighbourhood
Wharepuni is situated on the South Islands West Coast, 3 km’s north of the world famous Pancake Rocks and Blowholes at Punakaiki. Located in the heart of Paparoa National Park, the cottage is surrounded by sub tropical rainforest with stunning 360 degrees views of the Tasman sea and the National Park. Walk 2 minutes to Truman track and on to the breath taking Truman beach, this is one of New Zealand's best short walks. The beach has huge limestone cliffs and waterfalls cascading on to the beach. Drive 5 minutes up to the Pancake Rocks to experience the raw power of the Tasman Sea pounding the cliffs sending plumes of sea spray high into the air.
