Explore Hokitika

Hokitika is located on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand and has a population of approximately 3,500 people. It is a convenient base location to explore the West Coast, with Franz Jospeh and Fox Glaciers to the south and Punakaiki Pancake Rocks to the North as well as many other attractions and activities between including several stunning lakes easily accessible for boating, fishing and water sports.

Stations Inn is located in the heart of Hokitika's historic goldrush area. It is situated on the elevated Blue Spur terraces which offer breathtaking scenery, in particular panoramic views of the Tasman Sea, the Southern Alps mountain range and spectacular sunsets.
