Waitomo – Fifteen minutes from Otorohanga is the area of Waitomo. Waitomo can be translated as the ‘stream which flows into the hole in the ground.’
This meaning is reflected through its fantastic geological history and landscape. It is also one of New Zealand’s original tourist destination. Visitors flock to explore the underground wonderland of caves, subterranean streams and amazing limestone formations. There are walks, boat trips and the collections of glow worms to marvel at. The adrenaline junkies can indulge in black water rafting, abseiling, waterfall jumping and ziplining.
This makes it a place for the whole family, grandparents to kids!
