We met some people at a backpackers in Kaikoura a few days before, we made the decision to visit Hokitika on our trip to the west of the South Island.
They'd just come back from there, and strongly recommended that we stayed at Hokitika rather than Greymouth, as they found it so much more interesting.
So, we gave it a go, took their advice and booked ourselves accommodation at the town of Hokitka, which we knew nothing about, apart from a bit of info in one of the brochures which said it was a historic town, originally a gold discovery town.
please come back later...ie about a week would be good!
For now, I leave you with one of our most beautiful souvenirs of the trip, our one and only sunset viewing....
- Pros:A good range of activities to do, beautiful mountain backdrop with snowy peaks.
- Cons:Quite remote, but the whole west coast is
- In a nutshell:Historic town, views of Mt Cook and the alps, amazing beach and waves right in the centre of town
Another view from the main street of the majestic mountain backdrop. more travel advice
A good place to start to find out about all the activities which can be done in the area, adventure and otherwise. more travel advice
