The gorge is a quick drive from Hokitika town with unbelievably blue water.
From the carpark follow the signs to the gorge. The trail goes through the forest for approximately 10 minutes downhill before reaching the swing bridge which spans the gorge. After the bridge you can continue walking down to another viewing platform and opportunity to go further down, closer to the water. Return to the car park via the same trail.
- Walking shoes
- Warm clothing
- Insect repellent (there are lots of sandflies by the water)
