Explore the Moeraki Boulders
New Zealand › Koekohe Beach
Added by Lauren Schusterman
Beautiful spherical boulders along a stretch of Coastal OtagoQuick few minute walk from the parking lotClose to both Oamaru and DunedinSunrise over the water
Sunrise is a perfect time to come visit these boulders as you not only beat the crowds that flock to the beach later in the day but also get to watch the sun rise up behind the boulders.
These boulders are a small detour off of Highway 1 so they make a nice stop on a road trip up the East Coast of the South Island or can be a quick hour trip from Dunedin.
- Warm clothes (its quite chilly in the morning)

Timing is very important! Based on how my trip wound up, didn't make it until about 11:30am or so, and it was already crowded. The boulders themselves were cool, but can imagine the difference between sunrise and midday. Certainly worth a stop! Right off Hwy 1 between Dunedin and Christchurch it is a perfect spot to stretch the legs and check out some incredibly unique boulders
