Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Pay a visit to Hokitika Gorge Walk, where the Hokitika River wends its way through a rocky canyon surrounded by lush foliage of native trees. Hit the well-defined and well-marked walking trail in the area to make your way through the gorge's bountiful nature to its several vantage points. Don't worry about equipping yourself with any special walking gear other than comfortable shoes, as the stroll is a short and non-strenuous one. Be sure to bring your camera, as the area's suspension bridge affords an attractive view over the river's bright turquoise waters.
