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.
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.
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.
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.
Seeing a beautiful sunset in Hokitika, New Zealand, jumping from the height of 10,000 feet in Queenstown, hiking 10 km in Mount Cook, making a vow under the snowy mountains, picnicking at Lake Wanaka, in Tikpo The lake held hands to see the starry sky and the Milky Way, the first attempt to fly in Wanaka and the lobster in Kaikoura. . . . 1 car, 11 days, more than 2,800 kilometers, galloping in the dream of New Zealand, experienced an unprecedented journey!
New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the southern hemisphere, consisting of two islands, the South Island and the North Island, and the South Island is close to Antarctica (so if you are lucky enough to see the South Pole, you will see the most beautiful in Tekapu The starry sky and the rare Antarctic light), the North Island and Fiji are a country that is very suitable for self-driving travel. The distance between the various attractions is not close, but the scenery is infinite.
This is our main destination for self-driving New Zealand South Island. The South Island is famous for its natural landscapes. Lakes, snow mountains, glaciers, jungles and oceans are all available. Around the South Island, I traveled around the South Island, galloping in the blue sky and white clouds, like a fairy tale world, as beautiful as a dream, but it is still at your fingertips.
Hokitika, the gateway to the Fox Glacier and the Franz Josef Glacier, produces New Zealand-specific jade, known as the City of Jade
If you take the bus, Hokitika Green in Hokitika The parking lot behind the jade shop is the last stop to go to Fox Glacier. After 40 minutes of parking, you can go to the supermarket to buy. Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier are not so big, and things are more expensive. There is a new world supermarket.
What to play?
1, Hokitika Beach
In the central street of the small town, you can find a wooden sign with Hokitika Beach Access. You can see a very large beach. On sunny days, green grass, blue sky and white clouds, there are white stones on the black sand. There are also artworks by trees from all over the beach, which are very beautiful!
2, Hokitika Gorge
the town's hotels often have an introduction to this attraction. It is a milk river and canyons on both sides. A suspension bridge in the air is a historic place in New Zealand. . 35km from the town of Hokitika.
Tips: Self-driving navigation, let's go, from the town, drive for half an hour
3, you can explore the night. Hokitika Firefly: glow worm dell, not a cave, but a hill
The Alpine train made Arthur pass, and the driver master waited for me at Arthur's Pass, and began to travel along the New Zealand West Coast Route 6 by Hokitika-Fox Glacier. Along the 6th public heel to the road to Fox, all the way to the snow-capped mountains and lakes, the scenery is beautiful. Hokitika is a small town on the west coast of New Zealand and is a must for the Fox Glacier and the Franz Josef Glacier.
Hokitika is a small town on the west coast of New Zealand and is a must for the Fox Glacier and the Franz Josef Glacier. Known for its unique green jade in New Zealand, it is known as the city of jade in New Zealand. The historic Hokitika is also a place to learn about the fascinating history of New Zealand's west coast, strolling through the town's only main street, quietly as if you can hear the buzz from the clocks on the iconic clock tower in the heart of the town.
Continue from Hokitika to the south, turn south on the town of Ross, and the sky begins to clear. We stopped at the three lakes and took a break to enjoy the view.
You can mark it on the map in advance. Lake lathe, lake wahapo, lake mapourika.
Driving on New Zealand's country roads, the green signs on the roadside point to an attraction. These three lakes are no exception. Turning inland from the west coast, the weather unexpectedly cleared.
At the lakeside parking lot, some locals have breakfast on the wooden table. The blue sky is reflected in the lake, and the windless lake turns into a thin mirror. Walking into the lake, I found the lake very clean and crystal clear. The stones and fish under the lake shore are clearly visible. These lakes are also fishing, but people who are fishing need to have a license. For tourists like us, these lakes are just passing by in a hurry.
There are not many locals around the lake, there are fewer homes, and it is rare to be quiet. The only thing that bothered the peace here was the breeze and the white clouds.
On the beach of Hokitika, there is a symbolic spot of the net red, which is the shape of this HOKITIKA wood, which attracts people from all over the world to pilgrimage, the perfect sky and the color of the sea to integrate it all. The color of the beach here is rare black sand. Although it is dirty at first sight, it is still more delicate after going down. The town is still so quiet, there are not many pedestrians and vehicles on the street. The landmark building of the town is a bell tower standing in the center of the central road around the island. The town seems quiet to hear the buzzing of the clock of the clock tower. The seagulls on the beach are flying freely. It is the life I am looking forward to.
Hokitika's beach has a lot of wood that is made by the locals, so it is suitable for the future. Walking on the beach, because of the many sundries, it flashed a flashlight. When the clouds were foggy and the Milky Way in the southern hemisphere was in front of me for the first time, this long-lost touch made me excited and set my flashlight to the sky.
There is a fjord in the nearby half-hour drive. It was just for the purpose of killing time. I didn't expect the scenery to exceed my expectations. Looking at the heights, the blue water surface is like a strange gem set in the jungle. You can walk to the high-pitched rock, but be careful, you can't see it in the picture. It's actually very dangerous. If you don't pay attention, it will fall into the water. I climbed over and the old people wanted to come over and I was stopped.
Salmon Farm South Westland Salmon, just off Bruce Bay, pay attention to the signs on the road. I can see the salmon breeding pond, and it is said that the Paringa River, which is melted in snow and mountains, raises salmon and is very hygienic. There are a group of small fish and a big fish. . Next to it is the restaurant, which has a variety of salmon food and the scenery is not bad. I also posted a beautiful refrigerator in this accident, as if to say what is the stone material, I believe. Salmon is very fresh, it is recommended to buy a large piece, it will be cheaper than a box, by the way: If the trip is sure to come here to eat a meal, then please buy lemon and mustard in the supermarket in advance. . Can save the province, the hoopist consciousness shines.
Next door to
Hokitika Beach is Fat Pipi Pizzas, the only silverfish pizza on the West Coast. Its really hot to go into the door, but I have to wait for it. There is an outdoor garden area behind, the sky is too cold, afraid of freezing or giving up, and the boss discussed it, just sitting at the table in the waiting area at the door.
Have you ever eaten Taihu Sanbai and Silverfish Steamed Egg? New Zealanders also love silverfish and fish more on the west coast of the South Island. They are juveniles of several different species of milkfish. We are also very fortunate to catch up with the silverfish season in the spring. Silverfish pizza is not bad, recommended.
The ginger beer in the picture is called Pentax, which is the first-selling ginger beer in Australia. Although it is beer, Pentax does not contain any alcohol. It is not just a combination of soda and ginger flavoring agents. It is made by selecting a selection of Australian quality dried ginger and then heating it with caramel water. Natural yeast malt fermentation.
Hokitika is a small town in the western part of New Zealand's South Island. It is famous for its unique green jade in New Zealand and is known as the Jade City of New Zealand. What I like more, however, is its tranquility. At 8 or 9 o'clock in the summer evening, stroll on the delicate sand beach, admire the works stacked by the artists with dead wood, waiting for the sunset to come... There is no one on the street, if it is not a few hares pulled out from the grass Selling Meng, you will feel that this world is as quiet as you and the people around you... In addition, the free firefly forest here is also recommended, just on the edge of the town, although it is said to be much smaller than the size of the firefly hole in the North Island. But after I walked in for the first time, it was still very shocking. It was really dreamy. Of course, if there are fewer tourists, there will be no more light and voice, and it will be more romantic.
