Te Anau Glowworm Caves

Great adventure for the family

Te Anau Glowworm Caves (1).

“Te Ana-au” means “cave of rushing waters”, so it’s thought that Māori knew of the Te Ana-au caves well before Europeans turned up.

The caves were ‘re-discovered’ in 1948 and are now a popular visitor attraction, largely due to the proliferation of glow-worms.

Visitors take a tour that involves a boat to the caves on the western side of the lake, a visit through through the cave system, then boat back to Te Anau township.
