Explore the Waipu caves: 16 kms nw of Waipu. There are 300m of explored passageways. The main cave is 175m in length an contains one of the longest stalagmites in NZ. There is plenty of headroom, impressive limestone formations and glow-worms inside the cave. But take care as the surface is wet and slippery.
You need good footwear and a torch and compass if venturing into the cave, and beginners are advised to stay in the main cave.
Walk from Waipu Caves up 1.5 hour return – The walk takes you up and along the ridgeline looking out to the Hen and Chicken Islands.
Much of the walk is on private land, so please take note of the signs, and stay on the track.
