Piripiri Cave Walk Waitomo

A short drive from the Mangapohue Natural Bridge and west of Waitomo Village, is the Piripiri Cave Walk. Take a torch and explore one of the few free Waitomo Caves.

Perfect for families, this short 5 minute Waitomo walk takes in native bush surrounds and limestone outcrops before reaching the cave entrance.

A staircase then descends into the cave to a viewing platform where visitors can take in the sights of the large cave and the ecosystem within.

A torch is recommended for entering and exiting the cave.

While you’re there why not experience one of the other walks on offer in the area including the Marokopa Falls and Ruakuri walk.

Please note: Many of the walking trails in the Waikato region do not allow dogs. Hamilton & Waikato Tourism recommend checking with the Department of Conservation before taking your dog on any of the trails in the region.
