I love the beautiful St Mary.
It is painted in pure white colour which make this place of worship so pure and holy.
The architecture are magnificant.
If you use a little bit of imagination, you could see a face ;p
In March each year the Wild Food festival is held. It's a massive mix of food and wine with an inclination toward the wierd. The population swells to over 20,000 for that weekend with travellers from all over the globe. The next festival is 11 March 2006.
I didn't get a chance to do this as we ran out of time. It does take a full day but would be pretty cool if you were into that sort of thing. You design your own pendant and then create it yourself with one of hokitika's well known carvers...so well known that i forgot his name.
Glow Worm Dell.
At night as darkness approaches you can see the wee tiny worms glowing and the darker it becomes the brighter the worms appear..., simply amazing as these worms are not inside caves but on the forest northside banks
Located on Weld Street this business offers free viewing of the art of glass blowing or design. It was amazing to see how the artist turned a blob of molten glass into a Kiwi.
The Westland District War Memorial is located just beside The Sheep Station and the Town Hall.
Didnt manage to take a look as it was already closed by the time we finished touring the town.
The Eco World was created by Jacquie Grants.
This is where you could see live kiwis, giant eels, opossums and tuatara.
There is a touch pool where you may have a close encounter with the animals.
A good place to start to find out about all the activities which can be done in the area, adventure and otherwise.
