Jacksons is a small township in the Southern Alps, in the West Coast region of New Zealand. It is at the junction between Highway 73 and the Lake Brunner road which heads north to Greymouth, and most well known for the Jacksons Inn and Hotel, which stands close to the junction beside the Taramakau River.
The Jacksons Hotel has changed from a pub to a cafe and restaurant, offering a welcome and refreshing stop for those driving through the Southern Alps. The first pub was built here by Adam and Michael Jackson, after whom the township is named, in 1868. At that time it served as a staging post between Christchurch and Hokitika. It was washed away in a flood in 1872 and a replacement was built nearby. The current hotel was built in 1910 and is now very popular with cyclists touring the mountains as well as road trippers. It provides live music which draws people in from the surrounding communities.
