We stopped here on our way south after spending three days in Paihia. It was recommended by the owner of a coffee shop in Kawakawa, opposite the "World's Best Bathroom". There were only five us on the tour and the guide. He gave a very informative talk about the cave system, it's formation and the glow worms. The trip through the cave was on a raised walkway and took about 20 minutes. When we were will inside the cave he extinguished his light and the view of the glow worms was like looking at the milky way at night. Further into the cave we were able see several worms at close range. We have not been to the caves in Waitomo yet, but they will have to be something to top this experience.
