Pororari River Track

West Coast
All year round. Check with DOC

If you’re in the area or close by in Punakaiki Village, get in touch with nature on this short walk through a spectacular limestone gorge.

A quick stroll from the carpark will bring you to a lookout with spectacular views. From here, the track narrows and becomes a little steeper for another 2.5km until it meets the Inland Pack Track. Head down to the riverbed for a rest before retracing your steps back to the car park. 1 hr 30 min return and a 7 km return. No dogs. Your safety is your responsibility, follow all DOC advice and updates.
