From our modern base at Charleston, travel to the Rainforest Train & through the primeval rainforest & towering limestone cliffs of the Nile River Canyon. A short walk from Soft Rock Terminal will take you to the enormous Metro / Te Ananui Cave.

Explore an ancient wonderland sculpted in limestone, complete with amazing formations and live commentary from your local guide. Visit a calcitic paradise in the Hall of Refugees before taking in the spectacular Main Entrance and the amazing GlowWorm galaxies illuminating the active streamways in the cave.
