Nice walk through the vegetation where sheep and wild goats are happy. The caves are really impressive ! Good to connect them if you're a bit brave and fit. We've done the loop and the caves in 2 hours without rush at all :)



Aorere Goldfields Track is a 3-hour loop, which gives you access to explore some of the more accessible gold-mining remnants. From the Aorere Goldfields car park a 4WD track passes an old ground-sluicing claim worked in the 1880s and continues onto the large open area partly covered by pakihi vegetation which is Druggan's Flat. From here the track climbs steadily, passing a side track that leads to the untouched bush of Stanton's Creek.

I have dropped a sepetate pin for the parking. Added a reference photo to here also. Great caves, you can head to the second one (about 100m past first cave sign post) if your less confident with climbing down. Entrance to second cave is very easy. Beautiful site and the fan tails love to welcome you
