Super easy trail suitable for all ages - a great taster of NZ bush & history. Easy return day trip from Auckland, Tauranga & surrounding areas.

Great, even glow worms in caves

We did the loop through the tunnel! It was very cool, don't forget your torch, flash light

do the whole ride from Paeroa to Waihi and back. Track mostly follows an old gold mining rail line so is pretty flat. Very scenic with a couple of bridges across the river and a long tunnel to ride through.

Great walk if you include a loop back on the other side of the Gorge. Why go back the same way. The loop trail is marked. Nice and cool in the tunnel.
