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)
