Waitomo Caves and Surrounds

From spectacular underground caves to the wild coast, Waitomo and its surrounding landscape offer an experience that is unlike any other.

An hour south of Hamilton the mystical world of Waitomo awaits. A land of contrasts, much of the area’s natural wonders can be found below the earth’s surface as rolling hills and unspoilt native bush gives way to subterranean limestone caverns.
