This is quite a high walkway through the trees, though most of the trees are even taller so not quite a walk in the canopy. Most of the fun is up the tower (very tall) and along the overhanging arm that bounces. There is a...More

Enjoyed sitting outdoors at the cafe having lunch on the cycle trail. Recommend for a coffee break. We did not do the walk.

Visited with a 8yr and 4yr. The tower part was a bit scary (for me and our 4yr). We had a windy & sunny day. Kids had fun giving us directions and food was nice so a very pleasant experience overall. Good job building the...More

The only treetop walk in the South Island, so a novel activity in NZ. This was our second visit. Last time it was raining, so we had a much better day there this time, fine with a bit of sun. About a 20 minute drive...More

It was well worth the visit. A short drive from Hokitika, well sign posted and plenty of parking. There is assistance for those with mobility issues but an easy walk for most. It gave a wonderful perspective of the tree canopy and spectacular views of...More

Thank you for leaving feedback. Sorry you were disappointed with no birds, it does sometimes depend on the time of day you visit.

Great cafe (with surprisingly reasonably priced food) and gift shop, but the real attraction is the treetop walk. It's a steep walk up a gravel track to get to the walk, but I think they take you up to the beginning of the treetop path...More
