- Waitomo is famous for the glow worm cave, first explored by Tane Tinorau, a local Maori Chief. Millions of glow worms sparkle above as visitors float through the cave on boats. Aranui cave is more of an adventure, with spectacular cave formations and huge chambers. The final cave, Ruakuri, is for adventurers on guided black water rafting trips and other rugged tours. To the north is the Otorohanga Kiwi House where you can see the elusive national icon in artificial darkness.
