Paparoa transport circuit
The Punakaiki Beach Camp’s Paparoa Transport Circuit connects to the start of the track in Blackball daily.
Our daily scheduled service leaves Punakaiki heading through Blackball to the start of the track at Smoke-ho car park. We are happy to pick you up from Blackball free of charge if booking return transport after your walk. We have a modern gear trailer so you can be assured that your bike will be well cared for on the journey. Our friendly drivers have been working with track users since the beginning! We are always happy to answer questions about the track and offer local advice.
If our service is different from your plans contact us, we are happy to offer group transport and car relocation services.
Note: When booking our services and not staying with us, please book ‘Track Services for non guests’, for the amount of people and date you would like to start the track. Press book now and this will take you through to book track services.
