Nikau Cave and Café is less than 90 minutes drive southwest of Auckland, New Zealand, and has thousands of glowworms and amazing formations. The one and a half hour tour through Nikau Cave is personal and unhurried. It is great for family groups, social clubs, team-building exercises and wet days.
The beautiful café is the perfect place for a relaxing day trip or refreshing getaway.
We are fully licensed, serve coffee roasted onsite and a range of food and drink options.
We’re open Monday to Friday 9:30am-4:30pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am – 5pm, all year; please book for caving. Closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day (26 December) and Good Friday.
“This is an adventure with a treasure trove of beautiful limestone formations as the prize.”
