Hokitika Gorge

Excellent views over the Hokitika River

Time: 15 minutes return

Grade: Easy

Start: Just past Hokitika Gorge Cafe on Whitcombe Valley Road Get Google Maps directions

The Hokitika Gorge Scenic Reserve is 33 km east of Hokitika. Leave Hokitika's main road by turning inland onto Stafford St which become Kaniere Rd, then Kaniere-Kowhitirangi Rd. South of Kokatahi the road turns sharp left, then sharp right. Turn left into Johnston Rd, right into Nielson Rd, and left into Whitcombe Valley Rd.

This track has an awesome viewing platform just 4 minutes into the walk but make sure you do the entire 15 minute track. There are excellent views of the blue-green waters of the Hokitika River as it makes its way through the rock sided Hokitika Gorge.

We were picked up promptly from the terminal at Auckland airport and taken to the dept to collect our car. We were dealt with efficiently and friendly by the receptionist and within no time at all we were in our way. The car was very clean and in good condition. On our return again we were dealt with by the staff in a friendly and professional manner. I would definitely book with Ezi Car again.
