Elephant Rocks are in a privately owned paddock on the Island Cliff - Duntroon Road in the Maerewhenua Valley. You can't see much from the road and could easily drive straight past this impressive display of local limestone.
After a one minute wander through the paddock, free of livestock, still wondering that was going to appear, the paddock opened into a big, wide and low bowl of green grass and limestone.
None of the rocks resembled elephants. Some looked like hippos and some like crocodile heads.
It was a very quiet and serene place to wander around taking photos. It was another New Zealand is really beautiful moment for me. I was glad I stopped for a visit.
