West Coast Wanderings

Over the break, we spent a few days on the West Coast exploring some amazing spots that I hope to come back to. One that stands out is Moria Gate Arch.

Moria Gate Arch is in the Oparara Basin on the West Coast of the South Island. It's a slog to get there on a bumpy narrow road. The sandflies will be more than happy to welcome you.

The walk winds through incredible bush...

The trail leads over and then under the arch. This is the view as you climb through a hole and under the arch...

Here's hoping to return soon.
