Cave
Discover the magic of nature at Kawiti Caves, a set of limestone caves boasting enviable views of glowworm colonies and limestone rock formations. This mysterious set of caves and resident creatures began drawing visitors in the 1950s, when Te Tawai Kawiti (great grandson of the famous Maori chief Kawiti) started to offer tours built around a great deal of insight and respect for the natural world and its wonders. Stalactites and stalagmites add to the atmosphere of the caves, lit by the luminescence of the colony of worms. Arrange your visit to Kawiti Caves and discover more family-friendly attractions in Kawakawa using our Kawakawa travel itinerary planner.
