Witness the Turquoise Water at the Hokita Gorge

Calling all scenery lovers! Are you looking for something unique, and awe-inspiring to do on your next day off? If so, make sure to visit the Hokita Gorge on your next day off! This magnificent gorge is world-famous for its magnificent views! The water alone is a tourist destination, with its unique turquoise colour! This phenomenon is caused by glaciers and rocks being ground up, causing a white tint to hit the water.

Where can I find picturesque locations in New Zealand?

Thankfully, New Zealand is full of natural scenery that cannot be matched across the globe. You will not struggle to find beautiful scenery here. One of the most beautiful sites is the Hokita Gorge near Hokita on the South Island.

It is best to explore the gorge through its laid out walkway, which will take you through beautiful bushland, and of course, provide you with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. There is a viewing point about 4 minutes into the walk, and from there, visitors can see the swing bridge and granite walls. So, what are you waiting for? Make the most of your next day off, and witness the beautiful scenery at the Hokita Gorge!
