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.

A west coast stop for fans of vintage machinery should include the Westland Industrial Park. An ongoing project of area volunteers, this collection of buildings near the airport, houses a variety of equipment of the past. Mostly construction equipment, small utility boats and motors, local fire engines and commercial vehicles are included, plus a few Caterpillar crawlers and specialty tractors. A miniature railway is under construction. which will add appleal for visitors with young children. My favorite was an American built stagecoach that was used used the route between Christchurch and the west coast during the goldrush. What a thrilling and terrifying ride! Friendly volunteers welcomed us to tea. Fans of vintage machinery are the same all over the world.😁 Check out the heritage park web page for more details.

Still a work in progress, but the volunteers who make everything happen at the Heritage Park are amazing! Vast breadth of knowledge among them, and they have so many amazing tales to tell of the displays and the history of Hokitika in general. Look forward to visiting again.

The Westland Industrial Heritage Park is part of the heritage walk in Hokitika. It’s an interesting place to see old machinery and talk to the wonderful volunteers that work on the bits of history. My personal favourite were the old fire trucks! Entry is free, but it’s definitely worth giving a donation to.

We visited the park in a cold wet winters day and were welcomed by a group of friendly volunteers. We were shown around by one gentleman who had a wealth of knowledge about the different machines and it was a fantastic experience. Our 3 year old loved all the different fire engines and especially the opportunity to sit in them. Thank you for the friendly tour and good luck with all the plans for the future, we will be sure to visit again!
