Nikau Cave

Nikau Cave is one kilometre long, has a stream running through it and is in its natural state.

The tour departs from the café and usually takes one and a half hours. The walk to and from the cave is through a working farm and native rain forest. The tour follows the river which runs through the cave, this means feet will get wet. Most of the cave is open and spacious except for a twelve-metre length, which must be crawled through, some people will get their clothing wet in this section.

An experienced guide will lead you through the cave and will point out many interesting features and give you some background on their formation.

A wide variety of stalactites and stalagmites can be seen, including giant pillars, fine straws and flowing shawls. The cave has an abundance of calcite formations and many glow-worms. The glow-worms and their dewy threads may be studied up close. In the big, cathedral-like cavern they resemble the night sky.

We recommend that you bring clothes that you don’t mind getting wet and muddy, and walking shoes with good grip. A change of clothes for afterwards is advised.
