Visit the impressively large and spherical boulders scattered along Koekohe beach, near Moeraki Village.

The Moeraki Boulders are a group of large spherical boulders scattered along Koekohe Beach near the fishing village of Moeraki and about 30 mins south of Oamaru.

These boulders are concretions that have, over many years of coastal erosion, been exposed from the coastal cliffs. You'll see that even today, boulders are still being eroded from the mudstone cliffs and will eventually end up on the beach.

The best time to see them is at low tide.

Parking available at public carpark (as marked on map) or at the cafe where beach access is available to cafe patrons.

Turn off SH1 onto Moeraki Boulders Rd between Hampden and Moeraki
