The Dancing Sands Spring is at the far end of the loop.  The spring water surges up thru the sand, causing it to actually dance.  Entrancing!

  2. Dirk Says:

    Handed back to the Maori a few months back, and they enforce a 18,-NZD per adult entry fee and very random unpredictable opening hours. The advertised website http://hamurana.co.nz doesn’t work yet.

    Tried to go yesterday (12/17/17)… they want $18 per person for entrance! Didn’t go. Parking lot was empty… think everyone else thought it was a rip off too

  4. Mat Says:

    Oh no there is now a fee 18nzd pp!! Looks very expensive for a walk

  5. Chels Says:

    Just a heads up, this now costs $18 dollars per adult to walk through. Still really cool to see!!
