The area’s oldest tourist attraction, this safe cave has a 200m passage, beautifully decorated with calcite formations which have developed over thousands of years.
Caution: Sections of this track require river bed travel and depending on weather conditions, may involve river crossings. Parts of this track are steep and rocky, and may be muddy and slippery.
Take plenty of light and respect the cave – no souveniring or writing on the wall please. There is another lower cave, but this is dangerous to enter due to falling rocks and sheer drops in the floor.
Access: Signposted from the main road just over the Fox River bridge, 12 km north of Punakaiki. When the main pack track meets a river ford, the Fox River Cave access carries on up the north bank.
