 Arthur's Pass  Alpine Settlement

Arthur's Pass township has been servicing travelers and recreationalists for more than a hundred years after its first settlers built a giant railway tunnel here.


We learn to understand the difficulties and attractions of living in an alpine community

At the National Park information centre we explore the history and nature of the communities community.

We can explore the issues involving mountain settlements (land care, visual impact, services, protection from landslides, snow, avalanches, fire, and floods, earthquakes, power failures, loneliness).  

We can survey the town listing the commercial industries so we can best understand how the town survives economically. and we can investigate the planning in place for emergencies, future developments and their survival ratings.
