About

​​Aranui Cave is set in the Ruakuri Scenic Reserve, 5 minutes drive from the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. It is named after Ruruku Aranui, the local Maori man who first discovered this previously hidden gem back in 1910.

Aranui Cave has a natural cave entrance and is the smallest and most delicate of Waitomo's three main caves. As a dry cave without a river running through it, it houses very little life past its entrance. However, just inside the entrance is a colony of native New Zealand cave weta and further into the cave is the most beautiful collection of stalactites, stalagmites, flowstones and decorative formations.

Aranui Cave is a magical, mystical place that is steeped in Maori myth and legend.
