Description of Te Anau Cave

Te Anau Lake/Cave  Te Anau Lake/Cave

Until 1948 Te Anau cave that gave the lake its name was found by Lawson Burrows. Glow worm colonies lighten the walls of the underground system. However to reach the location you will need a tour guide. Due to fragile ecosystem inside the cave number of tourists are controlled. The cave system is also famous for underground whirlpools and waterfalls that still carve the system and enlarge it.
