Hokitika is a charming town on the West Coast of the South Island that is famous for its Jade stone.You can even carve your own special stone out of some Jade.
There are some great lookout points to see the surroundings and there is also a Kiwi farm where you can see New Zealand's national bird.But if you are lucky like me you will see one in the wild!
A short drive away you will also find the charming Dorothy Falls.
