Things to do



Okarito now has an international reputation as a very special place, which arises from several highly valued characteristics such as; its peaceful quality, the wild coastline, mountain views, lagoon, free open spaces, white herons and brown kiwi, natural wetlands, and forest backdrops. These qualities are of immeasurable value to the West Coast experience for both New Zealanders and overseas visitors. They contrast and complement the glacial and commercial focus of Franz and Fox Glacier townships.

The OCA's vision is to retain and enhance these special qualities of Okarito. As this website grows, we will share with you through writing and photographs our experience of the glories of Okarito. Our thanks to David Alexander and Brian Harmer for the photographs they have submitted for the photo gallery
