Entry down into the caves
(and are easy to empty the water out).
A school group arrived the same time as us. When I asked the kids what school they were from, they all proudly said together Te Ra. What a small world, a Steiner School from our own area. If we didn't homeschool Steiner would of been a school we would of chosen.
The children were lovely and polite and really into their trip. They are a credit to their school!
One of the boys picked up a fresh water crayfish and I took a few photos for them which I will email to their school.
The school is very pro on limiting screen time (which we were too when homeschooling). We do believe it is better for children to play outdoors than sit exercising their thumbs and taking selfies of themselves.
We didn't take any photos of the glow worms- that would of been cruel - but honest it was an amazing experience. The above photo is coming to the end of the cave with light showing the way out. Allow a good hour to visit these caves.
If you come to New Zealand the Waitmo Glow worm caves are very spectacular - you won't get your feet wet - instead you get taken by boat to see them, Both caves are must do's.
