Facts about hokitika and surrounds with location information
Hokitika is the heritage and cultural centre of the West Coast - a place where travellers get to meet the locals and experience their stories. History is displayed within Hokitika's heritage sites, restored buildings and walkways. Between the surf and river, lies the Southern Alps as a backdrop, Hokitika embodies West Coast hospitality.
Travellers are inspired by the artwork made from jade, gold and other minerals. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities, including rafting, canoeing, river cruises, kayaking, scenic flights, bush, lakeside and beach walks, classic car rentals, museums and theatre. There is a good choice of cafes, restaurants, plus quality accommodation. For visitors travelling to New Zealand in March, the annual Hokitika Wildfoods Festival (held in March) is a “must do” experience.
