Magnificent granite gorge with milky blue-green pools, backed by cliffs and a beautiful rimu forest. This area (a bit further up the gorge) is very popular with white water kayakers - extremeness.
The drive to the Gorge passes several West Coast dairy farms and a memorial to the victims of the Stanley Graham shootings.
Take care on south bank track.
This area is the start of a few other longer 1-3 day walks.

So beautiful. The drive was great, through lots of farmland. The actual gorge is lovely. Water so blue. Easy walk there.
The water is so blue. The bridge was a little bit shaky, but an adventure! Standing on the big rock in the bay was/felt great.

Beautiful bridge over turquoise water. Easy and short walk. Nice spot!
This place is stunningly beautiful. We saw the Gorge on a drizzly overcast horrible day, and it was amazing. Can only imagine what it looks like on a sunny day. Our favourite place in all of New Zealand.
Nice walk and swingbridge, but the water was not as blue-green as expected.....maybe because of all the rainfall but we were a bit disappointed given all the promising pictures at the i-Site and on the flyers.
Definitely worth the drive! A wonderful walk to an impressive granite gorge with stunning blue pools, and great swing bridge. Epic and picturesque!
Beautiful swing bridge and crystal clear water. Many sandflies.
Very easy walk. A beautiful bridge under a beautiful turquoise water. Nice spot!
It might rain most of the time but is a beautiful short walk to a clear river.
Fantastic views and not crowded. Beautiful water. Watch out for sandflies at the bottom.
After a short walk, you are rewarded with stunning bright turquoise water. It is colder than you imagine when you paddle in it though!
