Kahurangi National Park, West Coast, South Island, New Zealand

Scotts Hill Lookout

The first stop for people walking into the Heaphy Track from the Karamea end is the Scotts Hill Lookout. A short detour off the Heaphy at the top of the first hill affords a spectacular view north along the West Coast, down to Scotts Beach and beyond to the region of the Heaphy Hut. From here, you can see the terrain ahead for the rest of the walk to the Heaphy Hut, through the nikau palm groves and across sandy coves.
