REGIONAL FEATURES & INFORMATION
Makarora is rich in hidden gems of history, culture, adventure and astounding natural beauty!
Situated on the Haast Pass Highway, between Wanaka and the West Coast, Makarora offers visitors easy access to Mt Aspiring National Park and the boundless wilderness awaiting discovery.
Choose a scenic flight in a plane or helicopter, or take a jetboat up the Makarora and Wilkin Rivers – whichever way you choose to enter the World Heritage Area, you can do so easily from Makarora. A popular hunting and Fishing area, many outdoor enthusiasts utilise the transport resources available to reach the more secluded parts of the park.
A few minutes from the small village of Makarora heading west is the Blue Pools Walk. Right off the main highway enter a world of lush rainforest, native bird trills, and glacier-fed pools. The crystalline azure of the pools amazes! The water is so flawlessly clear trout resting in it appear suspended.
Historically and culturally Makarora has a special place in the hearts of the Waitaha Nation - the first people of this land. A traditional ancient medicine village existed on the very site where modern Makarora now stands. A place of restoration, the Waitaha people sought healing of body & mind in the wilds of Makarora.
