The proposed Hokitika Rimu Treetop Walk
Westland District Council Mayor, Maureen Pugh, is backing a plan to create a walk through natic West Coast forest. The walk will be 30 meters above the forest-floor. If the development is approved construction could start as early as March 2012. Estimates are that it'll bring about 7 million dollars into the local economy and around 175,000 visitors to the area.
