"RAKAIA GORGE" Rakaia Gorge by pepples46

Rakaia Gorge Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 15 photos

at the foot of the Mount Hutt Range, is Rakaia Gorge, the Bridge was build of wood and finished 1882. 1945 she was replaced by an iron and concrete construction. a wonderful regreation area, with Salmon fishing, hiking trekks, but also shotover jet running through the Gorge..when the fishing season is over
and yes it is absolutly save to drive with a Truck, Motorhome and what have you over the Bridge.....I mention this because people send me emails about the security and save driving over

    Wow, this Rakaia area of NZ is gorgeous! I've got to get there before my travelling days are done! They do the rural mail in Canada the same way, saves the poor delivery guy from being bitten by a farm dog or two!!

    This reminds me a lot of the terrain in parts of B.C.

    I hope you got to play on that golf course:-) Wonderful surroundings. Great fishing area ... the salmon sounds good but I'd also enjoy the craftshops too:-)
