between Hokitika and Fox Glacier


We are travelling down the West Coast on 4th December and have a day to get between Hokitika and Fox (having first been to the Sock Machine Museum!)

Can anyone recommend good stopping off places for a leg stretch, bite to eat or for a photo opportunity that should not be missed. Hope the weather is clear.

Once in Fox we hope to do a helihike, but our b&b says not to book until we get there, but having read advice from others on the forum, it seems that may be too late, especially as we only have 2 nights.

It reads as if you are staying the night in Hokitika. take a drive out to the Hokitika gorge.


it is a beutiful area to visit plus there is the huge memorial in memory of the victims of NZ first shooting masacre http://www.flickr.com/photos/26176760@N08/4515636660/

Check out the bushmans center along the way.

at Whataroa, take a tour to the white heron sanctuary

take a drive into Okarito

In Fanz joseph check out the Doc visitor center

there is a lot more of course, and when you see something you like, take a stop, take your memories, take your photos, and leave only your foot prints
