Jurgen at the Wilderness Gallery is a talented photographer showcasing his own work and that of other eclectic local craftsmen at very reasonable prices. Jurgen was very helpful and friendly and this place well and truly deserves its #1 spot of places to visit in Hokitika.

lovely store and friendly (German ) owner. I couldn't walk out without a souvenir. I loved the Canvas printing and the Penguins.

We have been in here a couple of times in recent years. The first time we stopped here we spoke to the owner, who was very friendly and interesting. We bought several pieces. Today we have been back in Hokitika again so checked it out again. There is some lovely work in here and it is definitely checking out if you are looking for a nice souvenir.

Wilderness Gallery is a wonderful find, in Hokitika. Something for everyone, so much variety, with pieces that have been thoughtfully selected.
We enjoyed our visit, thank you for making us so welcome.

A lovely German couple which lead that shop with heaps of love and a special atmosphere. You will find a lot of different things from pics to sculptures and also jewelry made out of jade and other natural things. Everything you can buy is made in New Zealand what i appreciate...nothing made in China
So if you are in Hokitika I can recommend to make a short stop and visit that shop.

we drove by on our road trip, spend some time to explore this gallery but we considered everything overpriced.

So lovely to chat with Juergen Schacke, the owner/photograher in store. The selection of his art and that of other local artists is well worth a viewing.

A delightful morning spent at the Wilderness Gallery in Hokitika with the owner Jurgen, originally from Germany and with an incredible likeness to the German football legend and namesake Klinsmann! Jurgen’s gallery is equally awesome and his photography captures the essence of New Zealand. We bought a pounamu from the collection by master carver Peter Bishop for our son so will be a great memory of our visit. As the town is aptly named we promised to return one day to again visit Jurgen and his beautiful gallery in Hokitika. An absolute must for all visitors to Hokitaka!
