Hokitika Gorge, on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, is one of those magical places I will remember forever. Just in case, I took some photos:
We didn’t go farther as around the next bend we noticed a ceremony releasing ashes into the water. I can see why someone would want this for a final resting place.
We were traveling back to the North Island from Wanaka via the West Coast of the South Island. Our route took us by other interesting places like the Kahikatea Swamp forest and the Anatoki Salmon farm.
- Hokitika Gorge was pretty easy to find, once we realized it’s in Kokatahi.
- Using typical New Zealand style directions, from the town of Hokitika, drive east, turning right at the intersection into Kokatahi. It’s sign posted from there.
- Hokitika is about 3 hours north of Munro Beach where we saw the Fiordland Crested Penguins. Both are on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island.
