We suggest that you visit our local Visitors’ Centre at Haast Junction to gather information about your stay in Haast and your onward trip... there are some truly beautiful walks both locally and off the Haast-Jackson Bay Highway (SH6). We can assist with local maps and bookings for local helicopter flights and jetboat trips so you can make the most of your visit to our World Heritage area.

About Your Host: Nicola Johnston

Nicola is a born and bred West Coaster and grew up in Haast. After enjoying 20+ year career as a nurse and midwife she has returned home. The motels and store have been a family business for the past 50 years, since the family arrived in Haast in 1967. When the Johnston family moved to Haast to run the original business (service station, shop and guest house with a dining room) it was a truly remote frontier town. The local economy consisted mainly of farming, wild venision recovery and processing, commercial fishing, timber milling and of course whitebaiting! Isolated by a rugged mountain range, wild weather and erratic road access, this narrow stretch of the West Coast really did seem like the "middle of nowhere". The area has undergone significant changes and now is more focused on wilderness conservation and appreciation; and tourism.
