At 9.15am you will be met by your tour guide at the Waitangi Wharf before you depart on your half-day tour. Your first stop is the Kawiti glow worm caves which is about a 30-minute drive from the Waitangi Wharf. You will be able to enjoy a magical glowworm experience. You will then move on to Kawakawa.

You will also be able to visit the Kauri Workshop next door which has crafts and collectables for sale. You will then visit the famous horse shoe waterfalls, Haruru Falls. These falls are located in a hidden valley on the beautiful and peaceful Waitangi River. The last stop of the day is the Waitangi look-out Loop.
