About Awatuna | Goldsborough

10 kms North of Hokitika is the Awatuna and Goldsborough area, known for its gold mining history and scenic surrounds. Enjoy the view while camping and have a go at gold-panning yourself!

If you like the wilderness, this area is a great place to explore.

Do a scenic drive loop from Hokitika, taking in Goldsborough and Kumara.

There are great historic walks in this area with a local favourite the Tunnel Terrace Walk near Goldsborough. Beware…you are advised to stay strictly to tracks as there are mine shafts scattered throughout the bush.

Goldsborough is a public fossicking area so all you need is a gold pan to start collecting your riches.
There is a great DoC campsite here too.
