Cowboy Paradise West Coast Wilderness Trail

Cowboy Paradise

Cowboy Paradise is known as the lost city of the Wild West! Located halfway between Kumara and Hokitika, you won’t find anything like it in New Zealand. It’s a place to escape and take your mind away from reality.

Built in 2000 as a venue for enthusiasts of the “Wild West”, it has since undergone a major redevelopment and is now a key accommodation option on the West Coast Wilderness Trail while staying true to its original theme. Centrepiece to Cowboy Paradise is the Saloon where patrons can enjoy the hospitality on offer whilst soaking in the expansive views from the large balcony overlooking the valley.

Enjoy a full continental breakfast in the morning, and a prepared lunch if requested.

During the day there are different lunch and snack options available. Enjoy the beautiful view over the valley with a cup of coffee and a muffin or satisfy your hunger with fries, pies, toasties and sandwiches!

In the evening enjoy a good old-fashioned smorgasbord roast-dinner served with greens and a salad with a glass of wine or other beverages of your choice.



Exactly halfway between Kumara and Hokitika on the West Coast Wildereness Trail, this is the only genuine accommodation available in Milltown. Cowboy Paradise has seven en-suite units which have a queen bed and a set of bunk beds. There is also a family unit available which has two queen beds and 5 single beds (two being bunk beds).
