The boulders are on an isolated beach (with public access) on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island north of Christchurch.
The boulders are a short hike from the main coast highway on New Zealand's South Island.
The huge Moeraki boulders are very unusual, almost spherical rocks created in seawater in primordial times. They are now eroding from a sandy bluff, and several are in the water during high tides; others are poking out of the bluff and have not yet fallen out. Many were apparently collected for "landscaping" in years past.
