What is it all about?

Prepare for a day of adventure in a wild cave. We will be exploring one of the entrances in the Gardner's Gut system in Waitomo. A short bush walk followed by a descent into the cave. It will include some rope work, occasional squeezes, walking through stream ways and viewing some truly stunning formations.
