Truman Track Walk

The West Coast is well known for it's wild coastline and beaches, this track is no exception. Just 3km North of the Punakaiki i-SITE on SH6.

The Truman Track track on the "Coast Road" of the spectacular West Coast, is a short 15 minute walk to the coastline. The track is almost fully wheelchair acessible apart from the last 50m from the bush line to the plateau/beach area (the beach can be safely explored at low tide).

The track takes you through podacarp, nikau palms and rata trees creating a sub-tropical rainforest feel down to a truely rugged West Coast beach. The track emerges out onto a spectacular coastline with limestone cliffs, a blowhole (this works best at low tide) and a waterfall that falls onto the rock strewn beach.
