Absolute must see! If you haven’t heard of them then don’t bother you’ll probably be disappointed. There’s several walks you can take along the ocean to the rocks but you do need to get up close and...
Fell for the 2 dollar donation box . Don’t there are other ways to walk down that are free . A lot of foreign tourist which with Covid won’t apply for a while . Rocks are ok sans tourists . I am sure...
The Moeraki Boulders were conjectured as a "gift" given to the Earth by aliens. They did not go to the scene and could not imagine that this was a gift from nature.
On the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, more than 50 huge round stones are scattered on the beach. The largest diameter is more than 2 meters, the smallest is more than half a meter, the weight is several tons, and there are cracks in the corners. Still hollow.
The scientist explained that the calcium and carbonate around the charged particles have crystallized over 4 million years, but the shape of this shape, after years of scouring by the waves and wind and rain can form such a round and lovely shape, I would rather believe in Maori. The legend of man: "A few hundred years ago, the canoe Arede Oulu was overturned when New Zealand was about to land. Many of the gourds on the ship were washed ashore and formed the boulders we saw today."
Attractions, tourists and tourists wave after wave, but I would rather stay away from the crowd and see the warm side of the round stone.
The secluded South Island of New Zealand has a place on the east coast called Moraki. When the sea is ebb, it will see more than 50 huge round stones appearing out of the sea. It is better to say that they are giant stones. Eggs are more appropriate.
The shape of its circle, the magic of the internal structure, so that everyone who sees these stones have to sigh from the bottom of my heart. When I came, I didn't completely ebb, so I didn't see much, so it's especially important to find time.
Many people speculate that they thought it was the giant egg under the dinosaurs hundreds of millions of years ago. Now it has become fossils, and some speculations are the products of the outer planet. The local indigenous Maori in New Zealand said that the voyage of the boat, the Adelaide Oulu, rolled out on the shore more than a thousand years ago.
Legend is the legend, according to the investigation, the formation of these stones, from 4 million years ago. After millions of years of weathering, some have been naturally cracked, some are empty, and some are very hard with a clear network of fossils.
From Christchurch, follow the SH1 road all the way south, south through the plains of Canterbury, and pass through the small towns of Timaru and Oamaru. It takes more than five hours to get to the nearest Antarctica. The big city is also the second largest city in the South Island after Christchurch.
Before going to the big city, go to Moraki to see a world-famous stone ~ ride through Oamaru, in a place called Moeraki (Koraki) 78 km from Dunedin, Boulders (Big Boulder) has become a major feature and has become a famous spectacle in New Zealand. The shape of the gray rock is like a ball. The big and small are scattered on the beach, and some are more like the dinosaur eggs that are about to come out.
From Dunedin to Oamaru, the road will pass the famous Moeraki Boulders. Whenever the seawater ebbs, you can see dozens of huge stone balls on the beach. The round rolls are like artificially polished, irregularly arranged, some have been broken, and the clear and hard mesh structure is seen inside. Visitors also use their creativity to do their best to create a variety of POSE photos. The heartbreaking thing is that when we arrived, it was not only raining, but also the tide. . .
There is no chance to fuck in the Boulders, and I can only go to Oamaru with regrets all the way. It is a small town on the eastern shore of the Pacific Ocean that flourished in the late 19th century for gold mining, quarrying and wood processing. Not only the port, but also the railway, is enough to prove the prosperity of the time. Time has passed, and today's small towns appear to be sluggish and deserted, leaving only the quiet and Victorian limestone buildings. There are Raiders calling it a ghost town because it has abandoned too many houses more than a hundred years ago. But here also has the best preserved historic buildings in New Zealand and blue-eyed penguins and yellow-eyed penguins, which are also very attractive to us.
