Where can I find the West Coast Treetop Walk?

The West Coast Treetop Walk can be found in the town of Hokitika, just 15 minutes in the car, south of the town centre.​

The West Coast Treetop Walk provides visitors with an adrenaline-fueled treetop adventure amongst the temperate rainforest canopy. Visitors will feel their hearts sink as they make the climb to the very top of the Hokitika Tower, looming 40 metres above the forest’s floor!

Dubbed as one of the top things to do in Hokitika, the beautiful 45-minute walk from the tower through the treetops allows visitors to experience life alongside the birds, atop the ancient Rimu and Kamahi tree canopy!

There is easy access for all adventurers to enjoy along the 450-metre long platform that sits 20 metres tall up in the trees.
