Explore Hokitika Gorge


Added by Lauren Schusterman

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.

If you're driving north or south along the West Coast this is something that is worth stopping to see. Not too far of a detour and the walk itself is short and sweet of this scenic spot of surreal colored water.
