Inspiring stories, real news and the hard questions

No week on the Coast is exactly the same and this week is no different!

The country is gearing up for September’s election and bill boards are starting to appear in our West Coast-Tasman electorate.

We have had a stunning spell of great weather and the school holidays have filled our towns and villages with all the energy that only kids can bring.

Have a listen here as I outline more about this week’s Coaster’s Pass and give a brief run down on the state of our local economy. I think you will agree that, overall, we are more than holding our own in this post-international tourism time with significant government-funded projects and our own resilient West Coast character!

And as I said in the video, this week Coaster’s Weekly brings you another, genuine West Coast experience via our Coaster’s Pass. Check it out – a two-night stay at the Ikamatua Hotel for two with some meals included.

The Ikamatua Hotel provides a great base to explore Waiuta and Reefton. And while its location is handy, the real joy comes with the brilliant hospitality heaped upon you by your hosts, Anna and John McInroe.

You can check out the deal in this edition of Coaster’s Weekly and you can purchase your Coaster’s Pass here. Or check out the Coaster’s Club website here. I know you will love it.

If you are not already subscriber to Coaster’s Weekly, you can do so here.
