“Rawhiti Cave is nationally significant as it has possibly the most diverse and extensive entrance and twilight-zone flora of any cave in New Zealand.”
Just after you leave the carpark you cross Dry River. From here, the marked route continues up the valley for 30 minutes and turns sharply right. It then climbs steeply for a further 30 minutes, zigzagging up to the cave entrance.
There is a viewing platform just inside the cave entrance, with site interpretation. Keep to the platform structure and marked track, to prevent any further damage to this fragile ecology.
Be aware of falling rocks and slippery surfaces, and do not linger at the cave entrance.
