Getting Here and Around in Westport
Getting Here and Around
Air New Zealand flies daily from Wellington. It's a 3-hour drive to Westport from Nelson to the north, or a 1½-hour drive south to Greymouth. Either way you'll pass along incredibly scenic coastlines or river gorges surrounded by thick native bush and high ranges. InterCity buses travel to Westport daily, en route between Nelson and the glaciers.
