Piripiri Cave offers the chance to soak in the majesty of a cave in one of the few free caves open to the general public in the area.
A short walk takes you up through native bush and past some limestone outcrops, and then descends a short stair case to the cave entrance. A platform at the bottom allows you to stand and marvel at the size of the cave and the fragile ecosystems within.
Combine this walk with Mangapohue Natural Bridge Walk and Marokopa Falls Walk on a scenic drive from Waitomo to Marokopa.
Piripiri Cave is 29 km west of Waitomo on Te Anga Road.
- Due to the cave environment, the stairs may be slippery- good shoes or tramping boots are recommended.
- You'll need a torch to enter and exit the cave.
- Despite the dark, the cave photographs well so take a camera along.
