Hokitika Visitor Information Centre

Corner Tancred Street and Hamilton Street
Hokitika, West Coast
The town walk described in the DayOut Travel Guide provides insights into Hokitika's colourful history. An annual feature of Hokitika life is the wild food festival, "an extravaganza of gourmet bushtucker". It attracts large numbers of visitors.

The beach behind the town is a special place. Listen to the audio-guide

The atmosphere in nineteenth Century gold-rush Hokitika is vividly captured in Eleanor Catton's 832 page Man Booker Prize winning novel "The Luminaries".
