South Island Trip Day 4 - Hokitika

Ok, once through Arthurs Pass its a short drive to the west coast and the township of Hokitika. A town at the centre of the west coast goldrush, and founded in 1864. ITs quite small (like all towns in NZ!!!) with a population of 3076. But some nice historical buildings and a fantastic gorge, with some of the bluest water youll ever see (but more of that later


oh but remember, if you go to the gorge, make sure you put on mozzie spray. The sandflies here are incredible. like little midges but with a bite worse than the largest mosquito. Apparently its only the females that bite, they need some protein in blood in order to become fertile!!!. On the day i was there, i had my own harem (and that of all 3076 residents i reckon)
