City Tips

Named for German geologist Julius von Haast, the Haast area includes three settlements - Haast Junction, Haast Beach and Haast itself. You get the feeling you’re on the edge of the frontier - helicopters fly deer hunters into the rugged ranges and local pubs make a feature of mounted animal heads.
