Welcome to Hokitika

Popular with history buffs and the setting for numerous NZ novels, including the 2013 Man Booker Prize–winning The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton, Hokitika’s riches come in many forms. Founded on gold, today the town is the stronghold of indigenous pounamu (greenstone), which jostles for attention amid many other arts and crafts, drawing rafts of visitors to its wide open streets
