The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - TRAVEL -

Sit­ting pretty be­tween the Tas­man Sea and the South­ern Alps on New Zealand’s South Is­land, the West Coast is a land of un­tamed beauty and even bet­ter food. Drive down the 600km coast­line and be treated to na­tive white­bait pat­ties, smoked salmon and veni­son, plus wild deer and boar for the more ad­ven­tur­ous food­ies.

Set up camp at the secluded Rimu Lodge ( rimu­lodge. co.nz) and you’ll be sur­rounded by farm­land, the roar­ing Hok­i­tika River and the re­gion’s best fresh­wa­ter fish­ing spots.

If you only have a few days on the West Coast, be sure to visit the Salmon Farm & Cafe ( salmon­farm.co.nz) in Paringa. Perched above a pond, the restau­rant pro­vides a true farm-to-ta­ble ex­pe­ri­ence.
