Read about Okarito Lagoon and tried to look up more. Does not seem to have much information about this place. From what I gather it is near to Franz Joseph and famous for its white heron (kotuku). That's about all the info I have.
Can anyone enlighten me about this place - directions, how far is it off the main road, state of the road leading to the lagoon, best time (hour of day) to visit etc? We will be travelling from Greymouth to Fox and thought of breaking the journey and perhaps have our picnic lunch there.
