Glow Worms

BOMC 91 night sky3

A spectacular light show from above and from within.

At night, after your evening meal, and if you feel like a romantic stroll or a relaxing soak in our hot tub, look up: You will see an uninterrupted display of stars, under our unpolluted sky, the likes of which is so rare. 

After dinner, when the stars are out and just a short walk from the Lodge, you can discover our native 'glow worms'. Tthese special creatures earned their Maōri name, 'titiwai', meaning 'projected over water', which describes their general habitat along streams.

Just follow the sign and you will find them in the bush, under tree trunks or within the foliage. You will be amazed by this truly unique New Zealand ecosystem.
