Kawiti Caves

So good they were visited by Bill Gates, these caves are filled with stalactites, glow worms, and Maori history.


Also known as the Waiomio Caves, Te Tawai Kawiti, Great grandson of the famous Maori Chief, Kawiti, began offering tours of the Kawiti Caves in the 1950’s. Today, his family carries on his legacy, bringing visitors into the limestone caves to showcase their natural beauty and cultural significance. On the 30-minute guided tour, you’ll see spectacular stalactites and stalagmites, constellations of gloworms, and learn more about both the bioluminescent bugs and Maori culture.
