About us

Westland District stretches some 400 kilometres from the Taramakau River in the north to Barn Bay in the south and is bordered by the Tasman Sea to the west and the magnificent Southern Alps to the east. Within its boundaries can be found flowing icy glaciers, rugged beaches scattered with driftwood, bush-clad mountains and crystal clear lakes and rivers surrounded by towering native forests.

The Hokitika Newcomers group meets regularly for coffee mornings, walks, movies, beach bonfires, join us & make some new friends, we would love to meet you!

Our Coordinator: Birte

Haere Mai. We’re here to make you welcome.

We appreciate that new people bring new skills, experience and attitudes that can positively impact on our education, workplaces and our community.

We are working with individuals, employers and community organisations to provide excellent settlement support, and to help reward, recognise, train and retain new people and ensure they have an unforgettable West Coast experience.

We provide introductions, referrals, resources, information, training and development opportunities and host a regular programme of social events, dinners and activities.

Be a friendly face, come along, get involved, welcome newcomers!
