Explore Hokitika Gorge and Tree Top Walkway

5 reviews
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.<br><br>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.

Outstanding customer service. Katherine knows every piece of jewelry in the shop. She can tell you who carved it and where it came from. Well worth the experience. Absolutely brilliant beautiful place.

It was a pleasure to meet Warren and Catherine. They were so knowledgeable and friendly. Warren spent a long time to help us to choose the right pieces. We left the shop happy with 3 lovely pieces. We were so glad that we found this shop by chance as it was off the main street. It's a nice shop to visit if you are in Greymouth.

My husband wanted to gift me a pounamu while we were visiting Greymouth so he took me to Shades of Jade. We were so impressed. Catherine is so passionate about helping you choose the right piece and has so much knowledge of the carvings, the stones and the carvers. Fabulous, friendly, genuine service. We came away with a stunning piece and I lived it so much that we went back the next day to get some earrings which Catherine spent ages helping me choose. She also made the chord she put on to my necklace and it's gorgeous. I would thoroughly recommend this store to anyone wanting a beautiful, quality pounamu.

What a great experience. The owners are very knowledgeable about their pounamu and the tikanga surrounding it. They took the time and helped me to pick out a special piece reflecting me and my journey. Now that I know about this gem I would not shop anywhere else for west coast pounamu

I wanted to buy the NZ greenstone as legend has it the stone is porous and part of your essence is captured in the stone and that it carries the ancestors spirit. I’m expecting my first granddaughter and thought I could pass it on to her when I die. (Sounds morbid I know, but since she’s growing up as a kiwi, thought she might like it) This is actual greenstone from the area carved by a local artist. The sales lady was lovely and very helpful. You have to have someone give you the greenstone - so got hubby to buy it for me 😝
