Welcome to Wiki Waru (Week Eight)

We are off to explore the Waitomo Caves on Tuesday! How very exciting. Please ensure that your child has everything they need on the day, including their car/ booster seats. If you are providing us with transport on the day could you please remember to bring your drivers license with you for the team to sight. Thanks in advance!

We will visit the Waitomo Glowworm Cave. First walking through the limestone formations stopping throughout the cave stopping on the Cathedral for famous acoustic sound. Exiting the outside of the cave on the boat with a guide, we will travel along the river in the Glowworm Cave and see the thousands of glow worms sparkling above us in the Grotto.

We will also visit the Caves Museum New Zealand’s only Speleological Museum.

Containing everything you need to know about caves, cave creatures, and the history of caving in New Zealand. Not only are the displays cave themed – you can also crawl, climb and squeeze through the “cave crawl”, cracks and squeezes throughout the Discovery Centre.
