Quayside Heritage Area

Quayside Heritage Area Review

During the height of the gold rushes in the 1860s, Hokitika was New Zealand's busiest port, and had more than 100 hotels. Pick up a Hokitika Heritage Walk brochure from the i-SITE Visitor Centre and explore this rich heritage, along with more recent colonial history. Start with a walk along the Quayside Heritage Area at the southern end of Tancred and Revell Streets, and walk along to Sunset Point Lookout. See the old Custom House and river mouth; on a clear day you'll see Mt. Cook across the sea.
