West Coast Treetop Walkway and Cafe is a drawcard tourism operation on the West Coast of the South Island, located in Hokitika and overlooking Lake Mahinapua. Being the only treetop walk in the South Island with over 45,000 visitors in 2020/2021 the market presence is excellent, making this a strong business operating in a popular and natural environment. The cafe with seating for around 100 people inside and out offers visitors a wide range of food and drink choices.

The visitor centre with retail and ticket purchase assists visitors to immerse in nature and is central to the experience. The 450m walkway, situated mainly on DOC land, under a long lease, is set 20 metres in the air. The tower reaching 45 metres from the forest floor is a highlight, with a sensational vista of the Southern Alps and the Tasman Sea.
In operation for close to 10 years, visitor numbers have increased and approval is now in place for the addition and construction of a 400-metre zipline to bring an enhanced experience, which in turn will see an increase in visitor numbers and an expected revenue increase from $1.2m to $1.6m.
This is a true and substantial tourism adventure business with plenty of upside. The land, buildings, infrastructure and business are being offered for sale, asking for Expressions of Interest.
