New Zealand, North Island, south about 200km from Auckland down the west side of the island is Waitomo Caves, we are not too far from there…
Your adventure starts from our house, 1117 Oparure road, Te Kuiti. The 1117 is a “rapid number” which is derived from the distance the house is from the start of the road. We are 11.17km from the intersection of Oparure road and State Highway 3, not the 1117th house down the road! Just zero your trip meter when you turn off 3, slow down after 11km and start looking for the Green Glow sign on the left.
If you come from Waitomo Caves via Fullerton road, we are about 8km from the intersection of Fullerton and Oparure roads.
