We drove from Franz Josef and spent part of a day at Hokitika, and we finally got to see Kiwis. It was really cool to finally see the birds we have been trying to find over the whole country! They were bigger than we imagined and quite noisy. Unfortunately we didn’t get any photos but it was really cool to see them. We then spent time finding greenstone on Hokitika Beach.
We also stopped at a possum place where they have everything made out of possum, including pies, burgers, all of the seat coverings, a good use for them.
