Hokitika Gorge information
A picturesque 35km drive leads to Hokitika Gorge, a ravishing ravine with unbelievably turquoise waters coloured by glacial 'flour'. Photograph the scene from every angle via the short forest walkway and swingbridge. The gorge is well signposted from Stafford St (past the dairy factory). En route, you will pass Kowhitirangi , the site of one of NZ's deadliest mass murders (immortalised in the 1982 classic film Bad Blood ). A poignant roadside monument lines up the farmstead site through a stone shaft.
