  • West Coast History still needs you!     02 February 2017

    We are reopening our page and we still need your support!

    All funds donated so far have helped us to keep this site running.

    We are a passionate community sharing stories and knowledge about everything West Coast. We started with a massively successful Facebook page back in 2014 which we quickly outgrew and needed a new platform that can save and share this content more reliably, hence the move to Recollect.

    West Coast New Zealand History is a group of over 10,000 individuals spread around the world. Our supporters include the mayor of the Grey District. This group is interested in the history of the New Zealand West Coast and until recently has been combining information on a Facebook page. Since it was launched on Recollect , 22 May 2015, our site has approximately 25,000 visitors per month who view in excess of 80,000 pages per month

    We are not looking to make a profit or operate as a charity, as a group we just want to share our passion and the information we have and find it in a manner that is usable by all.

    Many places including schools are now referring to our site as a source of historical reference plus we are receiving requests for more information from overseas, an example being an image of a ship, the Barque Irene, was put online and a communication was received shortly after from Norway saying the ship was one of theirs and they had always wondered what had become of it.
