Fox River - Punakaiki

West Coast

  • Beach
  • Hike
  • Picnic

Add an extra two hours to your Fox River Caves trip, and visit the breathtaking Ballroom Overhang, an overhanging cliff face, and a shelter for hikers tramping the Inland Pack Track. The gigantic Ballroom Overhang has a circular back wall, with horizontal furrows carved in it. This shows how it was formed – the erosion caused by flowing river water and is known as a fluviatile cave. For a shorter walk head to the beach and explore the many caves in the area.
