FREE. One of the few non-commercialised attractions in Waitomo area. 5 min boardwalk to stunning cavern, parking will be limited in warmer months. Rotten long drop, avoid. 20 min round trip to fossil rock if you can be bothered with soggy field. There also exists a free glow worm cave (Piripiri) a couple km drive west before falls.
Natural bridge, once a cave, beautiful in the day or night, plenty of glowworms - magical.
Not what we expected - way bigger and pretty awesome! Go along the whole track, the stones outside are great as well. Only thing, that there are a lot of signs in front of the views.
Beautiful natural bridge/limestone gorge with an arch. One of my favourite spots. A short bush walk (well maintained track) takes you to this impressive formation - jaw dropping.
A very short walk to see a natural bridge. We walked it during the day and then came back at night to see the walks and ceiling covered in glowworms. No one else around and for free!
Incredible view at night, for free.
The natural bridge is interesting. The walk and the landscape view are very peaceful.
Another nice short walk to a real natural wonder. Only 30 minutes and good to combine with the waterfall and the glowworm cave.

This was impressive and it is well worth stopping off to visit. An easy walk from the carpark, and a great opportunity for photos. Best of all, there were no crowds - we only saw one other group of 4 that were leaving when we got there.
The natural bridge is totally cool! Empty, no tourists!
We had a great experience on this walk -- the rock formations are unique to this corner of the country, and since this landscape used to be underwater, you can see shells and marine fossils along the trail (they're marked, because you'd not likely find them on your own).
This was impressive. The bush walk to the feature is beautiful and is wheelchair accessible. Once there, standing beneath this great slab of overhanging limestone, good DOC standard wooden staircase takes you higher up to a lookout, then a rougher and, muddy on our visit, track loops back to the start. There's a good long-drop toilet and picnic tables near the carpark. Impressive, accessible and FREE - an unconditional 10/10.
Impressive limestone scenery on a short but good circular walk.
Small walk through a narrow and beautiful gorge to a spectacular natural bridge.
Beautiful walk, which is also pram/wheelchair accessible.
