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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the very short walk to the glow worms, could've stood there for ages just looking.

You can’t see anything in the daylight.. You will start guessing which is which.. It’s best to go in the night time.. We were so amazed and we enjoyed the moment as if you were on the other dimension (That’s how I described it) We took a photo but we made sure that our camera has no flash.. It’s really worth it plus it’s free.. It’s roughly 20 min walk from the centre. This place is not overrated.

This was amazing. To get so close to them was great. Everywhere that you looked you could see these beautiful creatures. Only 5mins from town - well worth the trip

I think our expectations were a bit too high! We were expecting a scene out of avatar! When we arrived we saw groups of people staring at dark walls...we had to ask them to point out the glow worms. They do glow...but not enough to light up the space...we parked at the bottom of the hill, it’s a two min walk to the cave area...glad we were only staying 15mins away, wouldn’t of traveled much longer for this but hey it shows us how wonderful nature is right?

This is well worth a visit at night time, very easy walk to the dell where you will see plenty of glow worms. Kids were fascinated, parents were grateful to not have to pay lots of $$
