Visited on our way north. We drove to the village first before realizing we had taken the wrong turn. Signage here could be a little clearer. The Boulders are pretty much as expected and quite unique. The Cafe was a nice place to stop with great views and good car parking, however be prepared for a $2 fee to access the beach.

Geologic curiosities that are worth a visit. The Maori legends and mythology around the boulders makes the visit to the beach worthwhile.

The walk along the beach from Moeraki to the Boulders is great at low tide - rather more interesting than the boulders. I still can't work out why they're there (rather than elsewhere), but they are rocks on a beach!

Always amazed at what nature can conjure up. Luckily we arrived by chance at low tide. Worth checking the tide. I was happy to part with the $2 donation to assis maintaining the track and steps. The rocks are so spherical. Some are broken open and one can see that it is composed of all sorts of rock. They were eroded out of the bank. Ive attached a picture of one being launched onto the beach

Almost submerged in sand. Better options at Shag Point. Probably the most over exposed non event of a tourist attraction in NZ

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 personal to really appreciate their size and features.

A well visited spot with the boulders being the highlight. They are an unusual formation from many thousands of years ago

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 NZ has better to offer and kudos to whoever has “ sold “ this because They have done a good job to get people down a track to see half a dozen round rocks .

It’s good to be a tourist at home and see the things you have always put off seeing. A bit of a cloudy day but it was low tide so we were lucky to see the boulders. A favorite was a broken one with a small pool within it. See attached.
