It is very recommended. It only takes 10-15 minutes to walk from the town. It is very beautiful. Unfortunately, I can’t take pictures.
Another sight in Hokitika is the glowwormdell, a free glowworm cave, located just across the road from the shiningstarbeachfrontaccommodation on the coast. There are signs at the entrance and free parking. Walk along the trail on the left for 2-3 minutes. It was raining when I went there. It was slippery and I couldn’t see my fingers. This is the first time I came here. I don’t know the terrain very much. You need to be very careful. The flashlight inside is quite unscrupulous and immoral, and the flashlight cannot be used to take pictures. There are iron wires on both sides of the road, and the vertical woods are covered with glowworms. The stars are dotted with stars, as if they are in the Milky Way. Why is the New Zealand firefly called glowworm and not firefly, because it is a kind of worm that can't fly. It clings to moist woods and caves. It spits out sticky filaments like nets, attracting flying insects with its own light. This place is recommended to go after 9 o'clock in the evening, the darker the more beautiful.
Not far from the hotel where we stayed, I went to see it in the evening, and it was only 10 minutes after walking. The fireflies seen here are all attached to the wall. The sky is full of stars, which is very beautiful.
After dinner, we decided to visit the Hokitika Glowworm Caves.
Glow Worm Dell. This is a free open-air wormhole. Follow the navigation to find this place by car, and you will easily miss it if you are not careful.
This is a trail with a diameter of about 500 meters. The inside is pitch black. Fireflies are most afraid of light. Remember not to turn on any strong lights or turn on your mobile phone when you go in. Gradually, you will see green fireflies all over both sides. It is very exciting to see fireflies for the first time. This free attraction is worth visiting.
When traveling to the South Island, the tour guide said that there is a glowworm hole not far from where I live. It is very good to go after dark
