Name “Waitomo” it`s coming from the Maori words “wai” and “tomo” which means “water” and “hole – shaft”. The Maori people for quite some time had known about Waitomo Glowworm Caves. In 1887 Tane Tinorau – local Maori Chief and Fred Mace – English surveyor made an extensive exploration. They were amazed from the twinkling glow on the ceiling passing through the Glowworm Grotto.
