The rise of a resourceful nation
Te Tai Poutini West Coast’s Tohu Whenua tell the stories of the hardships endured for our country’s most prized resources. A region known for its incredible beauty and rich bounty, these are the places where our people’s limits were tested and rewarded.
Stand where some of our most significant industrial history unfolded in the pursuit of gold and coal, feel the wairua in the heart of Te Wai Pounamu’s jade sources and appreciate our taonga and the journeys that led us to them.
