The Mangapōhue Natural Bridge is a fascinating geological feature west of the Waitomo Caves, near Piripiri. It is a 17-metre-high limestone arch and a surviving remnant of a once-underground cave system. The limestone is studded with fossilised oysters. A Department of Conservation track goes directly under the bridge.
