About
At Tree Top Walk Way, experience life with the birds high in the ancient Rimu and Kamahi tree canopy. Easy access for all to enjoy along a steel platform 20 metres high and over 450 metres long. Gently sway in harmony with the forest on the Mahinapua Springboard. View the exquisite Lake Mahinapua through the richly diverse forest foliage. Thrill seekers will feel their hearts pump and the adrenalin rush as they climb to the top of Hokitika Tower 40 metres above the forest floor. Be inspired by a sensational vista of the majestic snow capped Southern Alps, Lake Mahinapua and the Tasman Sea. Then visit the famous Hokitika Gorge and walk across the swing bridge and enjoy this magical place. The vivid turquoise water surrounded by lush native bush, it is well worth a visit and a key photo stop on the West Coast must do list.

It is a little way out on the road to no where from Hokitika worth a trip out, we only went as far as the first swing bridge got some good photos.

This walk will take your breath away.
The color of the water can't be truly captured in any photo.
Well worth the walk, I felt this was much better that Treetops Walk.

The treetop walkway is way more impressive than expected and definitely worth a visit. A massive impressive structure high above the canopy gives a totally different view of out beautiful rain forests. Easy walk, great cafe. They have golf buggy to get you up hill to start if needed. Well worth it.

Exceeded our expectations. Picked up from our accommodation on time and met Trev our driver who made the trip memorable with his vast local knowledge. A real West Coast amdasador. Unfortunately raining when we left Greymouth but miraculously cleared when we arrived at the Hokatika Gorge and the treetop walkway. Both venues were amazing in their own ways. Got us back to the Transalpine train on time. This tour was a trip highlight and we loved it.

TREE TOP WALKWAY - This is an amazing tree top walk on an excellently built structure and easy to access. Part of the way along the walkway there is also a tower which is about 40 metres above ground level and by climbing up this you get an even greater view of the native forest and you can look out upon Lake Mahinapua. Lots of birds in the trees and back on the ground we saw several Weka's which were amazing to watch. Beautiful countryside and so peaceful.

Wow! Bob picked us up from Hotel Lake Brunner and took us back to Hokitika for the tour. It was just my husband and I on the tour which was kind of neat really. Bob is a fountain of knowledge, telling us about all the different things on the way.
Hokitika Gorge is just truly amazing, the water was a milky blue due to all the rain and was just stunning. The walk is easy with beautiful scenery, swing bridges and lush forest.
The tree top canopy walk was great. This attraction has been well designed and again is an easy walk.
We stopped in Greymouth for lunch on the way back and saw a bit of the town which was great as we had not been there for around 25 years.
Thank you Bob for a great day out.

Our tour guide Trevor Molloy has a lifetime's knowledge and experience of the area and shared many local treasures and anecdotes that a self guided day tripper would otherwise miss along the way.
* Well paced and entirely led by individual interests and ability on the day
In spite of rain and mist, which added to drama and atmosphere, this was well worth the soggy boots. No refreshments at The Gorge, so refuell at Tree Tops cafe or take a flask

A pleasant out of the way park giving an insight to the flora of the area and that of New Zealands South Island, with some great views. We took our time to enjoy this tree top walk and read the information points set out along the way. Although is was a bit breezy we were lucky with no rain. There is a small 300 metre walk up a hill along a gravel road way prior to entering the tree top walkways. If you are not inclined to walk up the hill they do offer a lift in extended golf carts. Take your time to read the information plaques to appreciate what flora you are looking at, while enjoying the view. The tower gives a greater view of the lake and surrounding area. After enjoying the tree tops we returned to the centre and enjoyed a hot coffee, before leaving. Keep a kean eye out for some of the birdlife around the centre and near the carpark.
