Things To Do in Hokitika

Hokitika glowworm cave
13 Reviews
denis天涯任我行Another sight in Hokitika is the glowwormdell, a free glowworm cave, located just across the road from the shiningstarbeachfrontaccommodation on the coast. There are signs at the entrance and free parking. Walk along the trail on the left for 2-3 minutes. It was raining when I went there. It was slippery and I couldn’t see my fingers. This is the first time I came here. I don’t know the terrain very much. You need to be very careful. The flashlight inside is quite unscrupulous and immoral, and the flashlight cannot be used to take pictures. There are iron wires on both sides of the road, and the vertical woods are covered with glowworms. The stars are dotted with stars, as if they are in the Milky Way. Why is the New Zealand firefly called glowworm and not firefly, because it is a kind of worm that can't fly. It clings to moist woods and caves. It spits out sticky filaments like nets, attracting flying insects with its own light. This place is recommended to go after 9 o'clock in the evening, the darker the more beautiful.
Hokitika Beach

d36***08If you don’t take a photo with the driftwood decoration "HOKITIKA", you have never been to Hokitika or the west coast of the South Island. In the Hokitika travel brochure compiled and distributed by Tourism New Zealand, the homepage picture is a photo of the sunset accompanied by "HOKIDIKA". Walk west from the town’s bell tower for 3 minutes and pass through a small gate. Hokitika Beach is right in front of you. The whistling sea breeze and the waves are beating against the black rocky beach. The driftwood decoration and the stone green sofa not far from the side are the most eye-catching objects on the beach. For a long time, tourists will consciously line up to check in. The local residents' preference for the driftwood "HOKIDIKA" is almost obsessive. Whenever a strong wind destroys part or all of the decoration, within 24 hours, they must be refurbished as new with the dead branches of driftwood available everywhere on the beach.
Hokitika Gorge Walk

7racymoonHokitika Gorge is a half-hour drive from the town of Hokitika. This attraction is highly recommended. The blue-green lake of Blue Gorge is very beautiful. The driver told us that there can only be ten people on the suspension bridge at a time, and the people shake very badly for a long time. After passing the suspension bridge and walking down the path, you can see the icy blue lake.
Hokitik Kiwi Center

ccjccjIt's a very small museum where you can watch New Zealand's unique big eels and lobster fishing. There are only two kiwi birds, living in a dim environment, and kiwi probing for food with his beak on the edge of the glass.

137***66We were looking for a place to avoid the prevailing winds and found that the area is a popular attraction. After lunch, we took a short walk to the nearby cave-strolling along the creek in the bushes.
