“The Waitomo Walkway traverses classic limestone landscape, meanders beside the Waitomo Stream through forest and open farmland.”

The walkway is an easy grade except for some short steep parts. It starts in the Waitomo Village (opposite the Discovery Centre) and passes up through bush and across farmland with some great views back to the Waitomo Village.

It then crosses the Te Anga Road beyond the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. From here it follows the Waitomo Stream through a mix of shady forest and open farmland to the Ruakuri Scenic Reserve.

Waitomo Walkway corresponds to #2 on the map and finishes at the Ruakuri Scenic Reserve. #3 - the Waitomo Caves car park walk is a 5 min walk that starts as part of the Waitomo Walkway.

Getting there

Starts at Waitomo Village, 16 km northwest (by road) of Te Kuiti.
