This walk has got a lot going on for it. After 20 minutes there is a small lookout, but if you continue for another hour further uphill you will arrive at the walk lookout. Stunning and diverse scenery dominate Okarito. Tidal estuaries and lagoons, windswept coastline sea cliffs, lush rain forest and magnificent views of the Southern Alps, Ka Tiritiri o te Moana. Thousands of native birds make this place their home. Spot White Heron (Kotuku) and royal spoonbills.
5 stars. We booked at Auckland airport. We got picked up literally as we stepped out of airport. Friendly staff took our info and gave us the car keys(near new Rav4). Super simple process and car was in great condition. While dropping the car back Took them 2 minutes to inspect the car and without waiting we got dropped back to airport. Great price and they don't charge anything extra like cleaning etc. I would highly recommend them.Ricky X
