    Hokitika Gorge was beautiful. We were traveling from the North and it was the first turquoise water we had seen. WOW. I’m glad we went out of the way and made the trip.

    It had rained the day before we went there and the water was white/grey! Not as beautiful as turquoise but still stunning…
