The perfect place to relax and explore Golden Bay
Welcome to Farewell Gardens at Port Puponga, our small family eco-friendly camp is the perfect place to relax and explore Golden Bay and the magnificent west coast beaches, including the famous Wharariki Beach.
Farewell Gardens is a small and tranquil holiday camp, right beside the sea at the base of the famous Farewell Spit, the longest sand spit in New Zealand.
Puponga beach is a safe beach for swimming, kayaking or fishing and at low tide, you can walk close to the resident seal colony at Abel Head. Farewell Spit is a protected Nature reserve with a wide variety of birdlife including Gannets, Black Shag, Royal Spoonbill, Dotterel and Blue Penguin to name a few.
The night sky is amazing for night photography, especially during winter, not to mention the natural scenery which is pristine.
Eco-Tours will pick you up from the gate. Cape Farwell Horse Treks is a 5-minute drive away.
