If you only do one walk in New Zealand, then this should be it.
The Charming Creek walkway is located about 20 minutes drive North of Westport.
It is relatively flat and follows an old mining/logging railway track beside a roaring river. There are lots of mining/logging relics, tunnels, waterfalls, swing bridges and stunning bush and scenery along the way.
The track is officially closed at the moment due to a rockfall, but we jumped the fence and managed to easily pass the rockfall - (make your own decision if you are keen to do this or not, but there were other people on the track as well)
Easy for kids - not too many steps.
Stay nearby at the Granity Ghost Lodge - awesome spot!
