1. The kids will learn something and so will you
Switch it up from the classroom and give the kids a memorable and practical learning experience. There’s so much to see and even more to learn about these amazing glowing creatures. Did you know they’re carnivorous? They eat their prey from the inside out, who would have guessed...
2. Show the kids the nature that exists away from the T.V
Take the opportunity to reconnect with nature and show the kids that a world exists outside of the city. There is no other display which shows Mother Nature’s beauty quite like this. Take the family for a day trip or a weekend away to experience the most magical light show around.
3. The cave tours go above and beyond
Discovering Waitomo offers more than just the amazing glowworms. This place is rich in cultural history, with each tour offering insight into ancient Maori myths and legends of the area. Some tours are even taken by descendants of Chief Tane Tinorau, the original explorer of these caves.
4. It teaches the importance of protecting our environments
The ultimate goal is for these marvellous glowworms to be experienced by generations to come. That’s why there is a full-time environmental team solely dedicated to the care and protection of these caves. Show your kids the importance of fun that’s ecologically friendly when you take the family to discover the wonder of Waitomo.
