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.

I booked a car with Ezi Car Rental. Got a white Toyota RAV4. It was in an extremely great condition. The cost was very reasonable & so were the insurance options. The rental process was very simple & I got the car in 20 minutes. There was no problem during 5 days of rental. Highly recommended.Parichay Mehta
