This is really a nice place where you can have a great experience . The most attractive of all parts is the cave stream. If you are experienced enough and looking to have an amazing experience you can try on this cave walking. The total length would be less than 600 m inside the cave. At the entrance the water level is higher but inside is not that deeper. Anyway you have to be careful all the time as water level can rise up inside the cave, depending on the stream conditions. You have to prepare with specific shoes and clothes if you decide to do it. There are several other tracks with short walks, in this reserve area for you to walk and observe.
Awesome experience just 1.5 hours from Christchurch! It is a cave (completely dark) so bring a headlamp. A wetsuit could be helpful too, but you'd be totally fine in thermals. Such a unique (and free) way to spend a Summer's day!! I'll definitely be there again soon!!
