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.

Amazing Falls - best seen after a rain fall though, we had a huge dumping of rain and it was great to see the full force of Mother Nature in action, the fall was powerful and fabulous to see - easy to find - can even be see from the drive over the bridge - there is a walk on the opposite side of the road to do too - there is a parking area. Would recommend if you are passing and it has rained - a lovey road to cycle to the falls if you like biking.

If you go out to the lovely lake Kaneire you will pass the Dorothy falls Don't pass. Stop. You will not be disappointed! It is not the biggest waterfall in the world but it is just lovely. Well worth the 5-minute walk to get your photograph taken with that lovely waterfall in the background

Try not to drive so fast that you miss this. It is not signed. You can park next to the bridge. The falls were lovely and peaceful

We decided to visit Dorothy Falls in the morning. Drove to it from the east around Lake Kaniere. Quick stop in Hans Bay for photos. The drive to the falls is fairly nerve racking ..about 15mins of skinny windy road. Cross a bridge and there it is on your left. No signpost! 1min walk to the base. If you carry on heading west then is only a minute or two before you come out of the windy road.

The road in is not sealed but it is worth the trip. The scenery is great. When you get there, don't make the mistake of looking at the falls from only the bridge. Take the walk down to the base of the falls (1 minute walk), otherwise you miss out on seeing the top of the falls too.
