There are two stories behind the boulders at Moeraki and Matakaea/Shag Point. Science explains them as concretions that formed some 60 million years ago by the precipitation of lime around fragments of bone, shell or mudstone buried deep within mudstone under the seafloor. The boulders also tell the story of a fierce storm that hit Ārai-te-uru, one of the large sailing canoes that came to Aotearoa New Zealand from distant Hawaiki—the ancestral homeland of Māori. According to Māori legend, the boulders represent food baskets, gourds and kūmara washed ashore from the wreck of Ārai-te-uru 🌊 #earthscienceweek 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 📸@daniellevduin 📍Moeraki Boulders, Waitaki, New Zealand #moerakiboulders #Whitestonegeopark #travel #nature #naturephotography #photography #travel #roadtrip #sea #winter #newzealand #nz #wanderlust #maori #nzmustdo #landscapephotography #travelling #nzadventures #rock #nzmustsee #seetheworld #instatravel #instatravelling #travelingram #igtravel #lovenewzealand #lovenature #newzealandfinds #newzealandguide

Unusual beachside rock formations or unexpected dragon eggs probably left by aliens? 🤔 Truly a tough call. The iconic Moeraki Boulders are nothing if not mysterious and it’s one of my favorite little places to escape to and be by the sea. Don’t forget there are only 3 days left to enter to win a scholarship with @gooverseas to study abroad in New Zealand (with free @airnz flights) and have the chance to see some of nature’s great curiosities firsthand 👐🏻 link in my bio to apply #traveldifferently . . . . #gooverseas #moeraki #newzealand #nzmustdo #moerakiboulders #purenewzealand #studyabroad

Anche se i geologi dicono che queste 50 concrezioni si sono formate oltre 5 milioni di anni fa con un preciso processo scientifico ... a me piace pensare che sia stato proprio il Dio del mare Nettuno,come capita ad ogni bambino, a dimenticarsi delle sue preziose biglie in una bella giornata di sole:🧜🏻‍♀️🌊🔱 ••••••••••••••••••• 📍Moeraki - Nuova Zelanda 🇳🇿 ••••••••••••••••••• Visita ora il sito 🌎 www.touripp.it 🌎 per scoprire tutti i nostri Tour che passano per la Nuova Zelanda ••••••••••••••••••• #tour #trip #touripp #newzealand #moerakiboulders
Messing around in the boulders of Moeraki. Such a beautiful place, sun, sand, sea and soul. Each step of this trip continues to impress and delight. I genuinely could wake up here every morning and it would never be enough. To top it off a few wild dolphins came to play in the surf and say hello. Some times things just work out like that 🐬 #newzealand #moerakiboulders #travelling #sun #sand #sea #soul #happyplace #dolphins #wild #free

Tide coming in over the dragon eggs 🐉🖤🌊
We started our journey just two years ago at #moerakiboulders on the South Island of New Zealand. This was our first ever selfie spot shoot.

Day 288: The boulders were only part of the beauty.
There were many stories on how the Moeraki boulders appear on the beach. One of them is that a group of conspiracy theorists believe they are alien eggs sent from space. I choose to believe this because these boulders are really special and unique compared to the other ordinary rocks I’ve seen before! • • • #lightroom #weroamnewzealand #newzealandroamers #drivenewzealand #earthpixnz #procamapp #newzealandtourist #lightroommobile #awesome_earthpix #newzealandvibe #newzealandfinds #adobecreativecloud #nature_wizards #moeraki #newzealandgram #purenewzealand #capturenz #destinationnz #discover_newzealand #newzealandguide #newzealandphotography #shotoniphone #brandnewzealand #moerakiboulders #thetravelintern #newzealandvacations
That is a nice boulder. I am often intrigued by creation, God had a lot of fun creating our earth 🍃 Today I am thankful for my amazing husband and family in law! They are incredibly loving and supportive. So blessed to be part of their family.

Qui mi trovavo su una delle spiagge più incredibili al mondo, Moeraki Boulders. . . Questa spiaggia si trova in Nuova Zelanda, nell’isola del Sud, e con la bassa marea sono visibili questi grandissimi sassi di forma tondeggiante, simili a grandi uova di pietra. Ovviamente non potevo coronare questo momento se non con una classica foto da pirla in viaggio 😂😜 . .

Travel offers a chrysalis for change like nothing else - it practically screams metamorphosis. Leave home and suddenly you can be anyone you want. #travelnewzealand #realmiddleearth #moerakiboulders #nzmustdo #nzroadtrip #newzealand #purenewzealand #travel #capturenz #newzealandwithme
The Moeraki Boulders are a group of large spherical “stones” on Koekohe Beach near Moeraki on New Zealand’s Otago coast. They originally started forming in ancient sea floor sediments around 60 million years ago, and the largest boulders are estimated to have taken about 4 million years1 to get to their current size. - J.

Beautiful beach from another world #moerakiboulders #newzealand @beautiful.newzealand
Had a wonderfull weekend in Dunedin drove to the Otago Peninsula and Moeraki Boulders. Thanks for the awesome weekend @ameeralmao ♥️ #Dunedin #otagopenisula #sandflybay #moerakiboulders #friends
A beautiful day for boulders on a beach. #newzealand #moerakiboulders #koekohebeach #otago #beach #sky #coast
These boulders are over 60 million years old. And they are freaking huge. #newzealand #moerakiboulders #koekohebeach #otago
More beautiful scenery was seen today. 😍 #newzealand #moerakiboulders #koekohebeach #otago

This geological version of a soft-boiled egg is a cracked concretion from the Moeraki Boulders 🌑 These boulders erode out of the soft mudstone sea cliffs near Moeraki and collect on the beach—but they are much more than your average boulder. At the heart of each concretion is a pebble or fossil, around which lime slowly precipitated to cement the mudstone into its spherical shape. The cement gets harder towards the outside of the boulder, so when they break, the centre erodes away to form a little rock pool like this one here. Come check them out for yourself! #earthscienceweek 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 🔹 📸Sara Matchett 📍Moeraki Boulders, Waitaki, New Zealand #MoerakiBoulders #ipfanphoto #mylpguide #southislandnz #travelawesome #wonderful_places #amazing_shotz #amazing #Whitestonegeopark #travel #nature #naturephotography #concretion #geology #newzealand #nz #nzmustdo #travelling #nzadventures #nzmustsee #seetheworld #instatravel #travelingram #igtravel #lovenewzealand #nzmustsee #newzealandguide #showme_world #earthpixnz

Yes I am the little thing on the picture! This is the beautiful place where we saw yellow-eyed penguins for the first time of our life, a lighthouse by the sea.🌊
If you are going to New Zealand, we recommend stopping at the Moeraki on the South Island. You can meet lying seals near them! And at the end of the day, visit the delicious, iconic Fleurs Place restaurant!🐚 . . Wybierającym się do Nowej Zelandii polecamy przystanek przy unikalnych głazach Moeraki na Południowej Wyspie. Blisko nich można spotkać wylegujące się foki! A na zakończenie dnia warto odwiedzić pyszną, kultową restaurację Fleurs Place! 🐚 . . . #moeraki #moerakiboulders #newzealand #nz #nowazelandia #southisland #beach #plaża #ocean #boulder #sea #seacoast #seaside #travelideas #travelling #travel #traveller #travellingwithkids #travelers #travelfamily #travellingfamily #beautifulplace #beautifulday #fleursplace #pomykamy
