Kumara is a major stopping point along the scenic West Coast Wilderness Trail.
Kumara hosts some of the West Coast's largest events, including the annual Coast to Coast endurance race and Kumara Horse Races.
There are great short walks that feature historic relics, historic interpretation panles in town and you can fossick for gold.
It is only an hour from three skifields in the Arthur's Pass National Park.
