A short drive from Waitomo Village towards Marokopa is the Mangapohue Natural Bridge. Follow the boardwalk as it weaves its way through an impressive limestone gorge and underneath a stunning natural bridge.

Mangapohue Natural Bridge, Waikato

The bridge, formed by two ancient limestone arches created over millions of years, is a 17 m high and spans the Mangapohue Stream, and is all that remains of an ancient cave system.

This is an easy walk which is perfect for all ages. It is a 10 minute stroll from the main road to the viewing platform from which you can also view the stunning stalactites on the upper arch's ceiling.

If you look closely you can also see the 25 million-year-old fossilised oysters exposed in the limestone outcrops.

The walk is a total 20 minute loop track of approx. 700 metres. Pushchair friendly along the boardwalk there are then steps to the top of the bridge the walk then takes you through farmland back to the carpark.

Climbing the steps, which pass under the bridge, you get a superb view of the stalactite-like formations falling from the ceiling.

This walk can be combined with other walks in the area including the Marokopa Falls, Opapaka Pa and Piripiri Cave.

Just 25 km from Waitomo, when you’re passing, make a point of stopping and enjoying this unique spot in Aotearoa.
