Mrs. Selfish and I rented a car from Auckland and proceeded south to Cambridge, New Zealand on the way to Rotorua. Although Cambridge itself didn’t have any significance, it was roughly halfway in between Hobbiton, and the Waitomo Glowworm Caves.
The cave system has really picked up steam in the last few years and now seems to be a major tourist attraction. Having visited my fair share of caves, I wasn’t exactly rearing to go… until I heard they had glowworms.
Mrs. Selfish and I bought tickets for the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, and the Aranui Caves. Tickets are $67 NZD per person, though they were having a discount on their family pass which we ended up getting for roughly $105 NZD – score!
