Good, long walk
Sep 2020
This was a good long walk, would be good to do in summer, as can get down to river at a few points. Didn't get to end, but good for children (with plenty of food and water).

Experience Punakaiki
Jun 2021
We did the Pororari Punakaiki loop track. The native forest is so West Coast! To fully immerse yourself in this area, I recommend doing this loop. We started at the Punakaiki River end and timed it so we could have lunch at the cafe after the walk.

It is a pleasant walk through the native forest with beautiful scenery and be able to view and hear wildlife birds.

Beautiful walk
Sep 2020
We started this very early in the AM and went as far as the swing bridge. Nice easy walk and the scenery is so pretty. Track is well maintained and in good condition.

Amazing bush walk
Sep 2020
If you get the chance to do this walk go for it as the track bush and scenery is brilliant. A lot of the walk is totally in bush and when near the river you would almost think you had gone back in time.
Very relaxing but.... 12km long.

A walk not a hike

An easy walk that is mostly above the river. Lovely views and bird life. There is a seat a little way in where you can sit and watch the world go by.

Amazing walk
Jun 2020
Just do it, such a beautiful trek through rainforest, limestone crevasses, under huge cliffs. Half day or one to two day.

A favourite of ours
Jun 2020
This is one of our favourite short walks in NZ. Very well maintained track that meanders alongside the river. Versatile as you can take a short walk, a 3km walk to where the track meets the cycle track or do the loop over into the Punakaiki River. All options are easy.

Check the track is open!
May 2020
Tried to do this track as a 3hr loop, but unfortunately part of the track was closed (May 2020). The DOC staff didn't inform me of this while I was in the visitor centre, but definitely worth checking before you go.

Still a nice walk to do as a there-and-back-again, but would have been better as a loop.

Great walk
May 2020
The quality of the tyrack is first rate as it meanders alongside the river on its gentle climb inland. We went as far as the swing bridge (less than an hour from the start carpark) before then coming back on the loop track south of the Pororari River to the coast road before walking back to the start point. All up it took about 3 hours (not counting stops) and was a lovely walk.
