1770 Waikaretu Valley Rd, Waikaretu

Directions from Hamilton

Glowworm caves. Day trip from Auckland, North Island, New Zealand

Take State Highway 1 to Rangiriri, but do not turn right to the settlement. Instead continue around the bend and turn left over the river, then almost immediately, turn right onto Glen Murray Rd. (People have trouble seeing this side road, so if you have driven more than half a kilometre without seeing it, please turn around!)

At the end of Glen Murray Rd, turn left, and drive about 6 kilometres to the Telecom tower where you take the right-hand fork into Waikaretu Valley Rd.

It’s 15 kilometres to Waikaretu (small school and hall) and then another 3 kilometres to our entrance on the right.

You will see our Café on the right, with a large car park and sign.

Please note: there are no gas stations near us.
