Waitomo Glowworm Caves

This wonder is in Waitomo in the North Island of Newzealand and was explored by two brave hearts for the first time in 1887. The stone formations within the cave were created when the region was still under the ocean millions of years ago. The magical part is its population of glow-worms which amazes the explorers by their twinkling glow in the complete darkness of the cave.
