More than 30 million years ago, the legend of Waitomo began with the creation of limestone at the bottom of the ocean. Now these limestone formations stand as one of New Zealand's most inspiring natural wonders and a must-see destination. Waitomo is now world famous for its glowworm caves, Black Water Rafting, cave abseiling (rappelling), cave eco-tours, and landscapes. Waitomo in the King Country is an adventure wonderland easily reached from Auckland, Rotorua, and Taupo.
Otorohanga and Te Kuiti are nearby friendly country towns with great service, shopping, and dining experiences. To the west the charming seaside villages of Kawhia, Marokopa, and Mokau have stunning beaches, fabulous fishing, plus a laid back lifestyle. On a map of New Zealand the Waitomo Caves and surrounding "King Country" are in the central western North Island, south of Auckland and Hamilton and west of Rotorua & Taupo. There are also fabulous free attractions from caves to coast.
