Day 71, Tuesday 31 October 2017
Nikau Cave is a commercial glowworm cave in the Waikaretu Valley, near the coast south of Port Waikato. I’ve never visited the cave itself, but there’s a cafe set in very appealing surroundings which does good food and coffee. The road to Nikau Cave is a nice twisty country road with a few uneven surfaces and narrow parts to keep one on guard.
I was there today with a group of Ulyssians. After lunch some took the gravel road to Port Waikato, but I stuck to the sealed roads back to Highway 22 and Mercer.
Distance travelled: 265 km. Total distance so far: 10,544 km
