What a difference fifteen years makes: you can grow up in that time… but still fit inside one the Moeraki Boulders.
Excerpt from Middle England to Middle-earth:
Not far away was an interesting geological feature we wanted to see. The Moeraki Boulders were an amazing sight just off South Highway 1. Scattered across part of the beach, odd and wonderful as you could imagine dinosaur or dragon eggs to be, they had a surface that was cracked all over in colours of olive-green, grey and ochre. These large, spherical boulders, each weighing several tonnes, varied in size. Some were emerging from the cliff-side as if they were being born, others had split open wide enough to hold two small children.
Some things don’t change! Depending on what time you visit, you can get some different photos of the boulders. Sunset would be an awesome time of day to see them..
Our brief stop here in autumn 2018 was first thing in the morning and it appeared to be busier than when we came here on an afternoon in the summer of 2003. You have to be a bit skillful in so as to avoid getting people in the background of your shot, unless of course you want to include them. Crowded or not, a beach full of boulders like these is still a sight worth seeing and definitely something you don’t find in Britain.
