Oparara Arch

South Island. This is one of three natural bridges that span the Oparara River near the remote town of Karamea in the northwest part of the South Island. The official Oparara Arch is actually a natural tunnel. This large arch is at the mouth of the tunnel. It can be reached by an easy 10 minute walk.
