Formed when the roof of a large subterranean cave was eroded by the sea, compressed waves explode out of the blowhole in an impressive display.
A first and only for New Zealand; an insect themed park!
If you’re looking for a fun and unique experience for the whole family, Earthlore offers a variety of activities for all ages. Our mission is to provide a conservation experience that enhances people's understanding of our local eco-system and the importance of our amazing array of native insects.
We have a bug city, a circus insect puppet show, bug frisbee golf, a food forest, a gypsy caravan full of dress-up costumes for photo fun, and beautiful gardens full of insects, native birds, and short walks. The park is also home to donkeys, Chinese geese, and Merino sheep. It is a very memorable picnic setting.
You can also help our resident bug crime-fighter, Inspector Insector to solve a crime!
