Walking or cycling the new Paparoa Track this summer?

Let Brunnerton Lodge & Backpackers take the hassle out of your accommodation and transport needs.

Stay with us in rustic Taylorville (situated between Greymouth/Mawhera and Blackball), and catch our shuttle, fully equipped with bike trailer, to the Smoke-ho car park at the start of the Paparoa Track.

At the completion of your adventure, we will collect you from Punakaiki and bring you back to the lodge for a long, relaxing soak in our wood-fired hot tub.

Stay the night and leave refreshed the next day, or take your time, add extra nights and explore this beautiful part of the West Coast.

We offer free parking at the Lodge whilst you are on the track, and secure storage for your bikes and gear. We also have bike maintenance facilities, and can hook you up with the cycle shops in town if you need hires or equipment.

Brunnerton Lodge is a well-established, comfortable and clean hostel in an historic location, near the site of the old Brunner Mine. Come and share an authentic West Coast experience to make your Paparoa Track adventure even more memorable.
