Explore Hokitika Gorge and Tree Top Walkway

3 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.

People getting ready for the annual stick contest. Sunny and warm we struck a lovely day to walk along the beach.

Loved the proximity to the township, Hokitika wood sign, and views. Always a good place to walk, go and visit friends frequently. Lots to do in Hokitika, and good shops.

A nice wild beach, great to walk along and watch the waves come in. I don’t recommend swimming there though as the sea looks very rough and there are warning signs about the surf and no lifesaving people.

We live the beach, it’s easy to go to, eventhough we didnt see the beautiful sunset.. Black sand, clean and the Hokitika sign made of driftwoods is a must see including the shipwreck..

The black sands are great but what I enjoyed most was the 'Hokitika' sign made of driftwood - a major attraction . A fun bright green concrete chair is also located on the beach.
