Hokitika Gorge Walk

Turquoise waters & swingbridges (1hr)

Hokitika Gorge

You’ll need to drive 35kms south from Hokitika to the carpark at the start of this lovely 2km loop track through podocarp forest with stunning views of the turquoise waters in the Hokitika River.

Viewpoints, boardwalking, swing bridges and beaches come into play and you can see how the water has sculptured the granite bedrock to create the gorge. It’s easy to spend an hour or two here.
