Glowworm Caves, Te Anau Overview

Te Anau caves are outside the Te Anau town in the southernmost region, the Southland. These are the youngest caves in New Zealand being only 12,000 years old. One can go to the caves across the Te Anau lake. A boat ride inside the caves can be taken, which lets you witness the amazing site of glow worms on the ceiling above your head in a calm and peaceful environment.

The glowworm caves are limestone caves inhabited by Glowworms (Arachnocampa Luminosa), which are unique to New Zealand. The sight of blue twinkling light on the ceiling of the caves, which tends to light up the age-old stalactites and stalagmites is absolutely breathtaking. One can actually live the unforgettable experience, all throughout the country, thousands of such caves are scattered, right from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island.
