We stumbled across this destination on a road trip between Dunedin and Christchurch. I was awe inspired by mother nature and her capabilities. A beautiful piece of the east coast of New Zealand which made for some great photographic opportunities

Amazing geological objects ... accessible through a short walk on the beach. The boulders are interesting particularly for those interested in geological phenomena ... and very photo-opp for everyone :-) The beach is wonderful (we went in Aug when it is cold, so didn't get into the water ... but great in summer).

We visited the Moeraki Boulders on a very cold Friday. Unfortunately the tide was in and a lot of them were in the water but what an amazing site. At first you think they must be man made how could anything be so perfect and so round but there was a broken one and it had such an interesting almost crystal inside. Was easy to get to after a hot chocolate in the cafe, then down the stairs to the beach. Lots of little brushes to get the sand off your shoes which was good. Something just so completely different, I think children would adore being there.

A Kiwi friend recommended visiting the Boulders. What a fantastic sight, great for your pic cries and a little something out of the ordinary. One of them does look like the Death Star has crashed!! Very very cool!
