... driven down a narrow steep mud track in a buggy down to the river. The transport was awesome! It was only slightly larger than a golf buggy. A car would never have made it!

Highlights definitely were the hot chocolate picnic half way through the cave, the 'drunken stumble' passageway and seeing glow worms for the first time. The next day, we made our way to Rotorua (Rotovegas or Rottenrua!) again because of the geothermal landscape, the town has a prominent rotten egg ...
