Waitomo Caves

OK. This isn't a picture of the actual cave. Merely the Visitor Centre but nonetheless, it was an impressive structure.

On our way back to Auckland we stopped off at the Waitomo Caves to see the infamous glow worms. We weren't allowed to take photos inside the cave, and they probably wouldn't have turned out anyway. After being guided down the deep cave we got into boats which floated out into the river for a good view of the worms. It was magical, just like looking up into the night sky on a clear night. The pic above was taken outside the cave at the end of the tour.

Some other pics taken at/near the caves.

We passed a herd of ostriches (is that what you call a collective of them?) on our way to the caves which deserved a photo.
