Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It never fails to amaze me some of the beautiful wee spots we have in New Zealand. I was staying in Moeraki and had decided to do the Cave walk. During the walk I could hear native birds. A lovely walk it was. Nothing strenuous and then you are rewarded with seeing the caves

It's tempting not to mention this delightful reserve, with camping facilities and interesting walks (especially after some rain). It really is a hidden treasure.

Popped in for a look. Used to be one of the favoured spots for school picnics in the 60s and still just as nice with a couple of bush walks.

We were looking for a place that was sheltered from the prevailing wind and found this area a welcome and attractive spot. After our lunch we took the short walk to nearby caves - a delightful wander through bush alongside a small stream.

Nice to go for somewhere a little different for an afternoon walk. We found an awesome view on top of some rocks. Pathways need to be better sign posted as some points you weren't sure if you were still on the track or not.

Just south of Moeraki inland from the main road. Well graded path. Initially some exotic weed invasion ut further on the gorge becomes quite a pretty ravine. Would avoid if there has been heavy rain as I think the track would flood. Good spot to spend an hour out of the car not looking at the sea. Couple of vans were parked up in the carpark so appears a good spot for the self contained camper

Trotters Gorge Scenic Reserve is a lovely spot not far from the main road. The Loop Track Walk is a good challenge, but short enough to not have you spent for the whole day. With all of the rain in the region, the track was incredibly slippery. Take your time. I am not fit and was able to make the loop, but be advised it is a uphill the whole way (for the first part). A shorter, easier walk is available for those not interested in going to the top.

This is one of those ‘watch out for the brown sign’ moments - where we hadn’t plan on visiting but decided to check it out anyway. Lovely nature place with streams and forest walks - totally free and uncrowded. Beautiful in the spring sunshine.

We ha d been visiting Moeraki Boulders and decided to go to Palmerston via Trotters Gorge. We found ourselves to be the only ones there when we visited which was rather cool.
You are able to camp for a nominal fee and there are pit toilets available near the entrance to the park.
We walked up towards the cave through beautiful native forest. There are three tracks that you can take through the gorge. The birdlife was amazing and the creek was crystal clear and flowing. Would be a great place to camp for a weekend.
