See the ancient rimu forest near Hokitika from Westcoast Treetop Walk & Cafe, offering visitors plenty of chances for panoramic photographs and thrilling heights. This popular tourist attraction features a 450 m (1,500 ft) long elevated walkway, passing close to the crowns of mature rimu trees and sitting high above smaller tree ferns. Your heart may beat a little faster as you walk out on the gently swaying cantilever that extends into the lush forest canopy. A viewing tower offers additional views of the Southern Alps from a height of 40 m (131 ft) above ground. The cafe includes an alfresco dining area that serves up light breakfasts and hearty lunches. If traveling with young ones, note that the fully enclosed walkway is safe for children and stroller-accessible. Westcoast Treetop Walk & Cafe is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Hokitika Edition.

  • My friend and I were fortunate to have a beautiful clear day. I was truly amazed by the scale of this project and respect the engineering required to undertake such a large project, tho I did think the entrance price was a little too expensive. I am only giving the Treetop Walk 3 stars as my experience was completely ruined by unruly children screaming and running around the walkways.
  • Worst activity ever, even when it's raining a lot they are opened and do not accept one refound, althought it's clear they have to close...
  • It's a really nice setting and fantastic views but it is way over priced. It takes approx 20 - 30 mins to go round and costs $38.
  • Over priced, Little to no shelter on a wet day
  • worst robbery ever.. maybe would feel.ok if it cost 5-10 dollars but 38 is definately not worth it. 15 minuter walk to see nothing. Im usually positive but this was shit.
