Aranui Cave

Cave in Waitomo Caves

Three kilometres west from the Glowworm Cave is Aranui Cave. This cave is dry (hence no glowworms) but compensates with an incredible array of limestone formations. Thousands of tiny ‘straw’ stalactites hang from the ceiling. Book tours at the visitor centre, from where there is transport to the cave entrance. A 15-minute bush walk is also included.
