Welcome to Nikau Cave & Café

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.
