ZL4KF Location

The ZL4KF location (QTH) is in the south of the South Island of New Zealand near Westport on the West Coast, in the small settlement of Carters Beach, just a minute or two from town. Co-ordinates: -41.747867 & 171.563044. Locator square RE58sg.

We moved here from Waikouaiti, near Dunedin in February 2021. We love the place! The climate is so much better than down south as a much warmer ocean current prevents it from freezing in the winter and from getting very hot in the summer. It’s quite wet but the sunshine hours are much higher than Dunedin for example. When it rains it buckets down, but then the clouds clear and it’s a sunny day again. Actually, it normally rains at night.¬†

We like Westport, a town of about 5,000 with everything needed. No traffic lights, no parking meters, just a few minutes to the supermarkets etc.. Great beaches, scenery and without frosts just about anything grows like you wouldn’t believe. For us, there really isn’t anything to dislike!
