Some other walkers arrive at the lookout, chatting to one another as they climb the stairs to the top. But as they reach the lookout, the view stuns them to silence. We slink back from the edge of the lookout to give them room to have their moment with this beauty and take a seat.

Finally we round a corner, it looks like we’ve made it – the trees have gone, it’s just grass and a bulge in front of us. I’m videoing as we emerge into the open, we’re not sure but we think we’re here – we’re certainly over half way according to the GPS. The view is – well, it’s cloud – and our elation at reaching the top is well concealed. And there’s no sign of Arnaud either.

Conditions were absolutely perfect at the top with cracker views of the Glacier. The fog was still present, covering the terminal face, but the views over the blanket of cloud were somewhat ethereal. We could only imagine what they would be like looking out towards the coast in the absence of the cloud.

Hokitika gorge walk – this is a beautiful walk which starts about a 30 minute drive south of Hokitika. It is signposted relatively well and the drive crosses farmland with views around. Once parked it takes 10-15 minutes to walk through to the gorge – including crossing a 6-person swing bridge. When we were there we didn’t see anyone else and had it all to ourselves! On reaching the end of the walk we were greeted with the beautiful views through the gorge. Despite the fact the weather wasn’t perfect and the water wasn’t the colour it could be it still looked beautiful. We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this area.

Monro Beach Attraction

And here it is, Monro Beach. It happens very suddenly. One second you’re in rainforest and then suddenly you’re on the low dunes. The quick pace along the gravel track instantly slows as you trudge through the soft sand. My shoes come off quite quickly.
  • 2014-08-18 00:00:00+00:00
If you are going to look for these magnificent flightless birds, be sure to bring your patience. We sat quietly and waited for 2 hours before we noticed in the distance the familiar waddle and grace of a Fiordland Crested Penguin moving from sea to bush. We moved quickly and quietly and were able to get a few shots, while keeping well clear of the penguin as per the guideline provided by the Department of Conservation. Sadly, this was the best shot I could get from the distance, as it was taken back in 2010, before I upgraded my camera.

The lagoon is always changing and moving so the bridge is to enable access to continue up the beach should the lagoon be flowing out to sea. On this visit the lagoon mouth was closed so the bridge access wasn’t necessary – just as well as with the way the lagoon was sitting it was a bridge to no-where.

A nice short walk to a tiny pond full little animals: ducklings and pretty birdies. One might pass the pond in 5 seconds, but we really enjoy sitting here enjoying our snacks, the views and the birdies. 一个平凡又不平凡的小湖,在美景与小鸟的陪伴下吃个上午茶。这里也有各类青苔,细心观赏会有惊喜噢。

The west coast of the South Island of New Zealand is nothing short of spectacular. Around every turn there seems to be a rare and hidden treasure. Along Ship Creek we found the ancient Kahikatea Swamp Forest. It is considered to be New Zealand’s best example of a swamp forest. I thinks it’s beautiful, even without a bright sunny day.

The reason for the waterproof footwear is that there’s ankle-deep, freezing water that you have to walk through in the tunnel. I had brought flip flops for the tunnel since my hiking shoes aren’t waterproof, and I only made it about a minute into the tunnel before I decided it wasn’t worth it because my feet were cold to the point of stinging. I spoke to a few other people who went in far enough to see a few glow worms and they said it was about 1.5-2 mins into the tunnel that they saw them. They said there may have been more further in the tunnel but they didn’t keep going because the water was too cold to continue walking in.

ending with “breath-takingly insane” views of the Franz Josef glacier. As you can see we soon ditched the cool weather and rain gear as we had a stunning day up the valley and at the glacier. This was a real walk in the wilderness and it seems with every new adventure we find a new favourite walk – our latest Roberts Point Track – insane and loved it! Ouch – just pinched myself and nope I really do live here 🙂

An oldy but a goodie, one of our favourite walks is Canavans Knob, a short distance from Franz Josef. We wander up through the forest to enjoy a grove of rata trees at the top of the granite outcrop, the sea and river to one side, and up the Waiho River to the glacier and Southern Alps Kā Tiritiri o te Moana from the seat at the top.

The Fox Glacier Valley track is a (nearly) 3 km return track, which took us about an hour to complete, including a 10 minute break at the viewpoint. You’re walking in open riverbed, exposed to the weather, so dress accordingly. The hike takes you over rough and uneven ground, up to the viewpoint over the Fox Glacier. We had to cross some sidestreams and climb a pretty steep slope to get there. There’s even an area with signs forbidding you to stop there.
