"Waitomo Caves" Waikato Tip by keeweechic
Waikato, New Zealand: 7 reviews and 10 photos
The caves at Waitomo have been in existence for more than 100 years and attracting people from all over the world. You can take a guided tour through the limestone cave and a boat ride through the Glow worm Grotto where these tiny insects glow in the dark and reflect off the water deep under the ground. The acoustics in the Cathedral cave is astounding. Stalactites, stalagmites and sculptures have formed as a result of water dripping from the roof of the caves or flowing over the exposed limestone walls. There are well laid out tracks through the native bush that surround the caves as well.
The caves are east of Rotorua - about 153kms (93 miles).
Address: South Waikato Region, North Island
