From the viewing platform you can look down to the stunning Hokitika Gorge and out to the lush farmland of Kowhitirangi. Continue for another 6 minutes along the curving board-walks and you will reach the swing-bridge. From here there are excellent views of the blue-green waters of the Hokitika River as it makes its way through the rock sided Hokitika Gorge.
Cross the swing-bridge and when you come to the end of it turn left (straight ahead leads to private farmland). The track continues for another 200 m through the bush to the solid rock wall of the gorge upstream of the bridge. Good views further up the Gorge can be seen.
