The Moeraki Boulders are large spherical stones, found along a stretch of coast just north of Moeraki, a small settlement on New Zealand's Otago coast. The boulders weigh several tonnes and are up to three metres in diameter. 091201MON021

Grey: The Moeraki Boulders are a big attraction, found on Koekohe Beach near Moeraki on New Zealand’s coast. The huge, gray, spherical stones formed in sediment on the sea floor 60 million years ago and were revealed by shoreline erosion. Or, if you take the local Maori perspective, they are the remains of calabashes (gourds), kumaras (sweet potatoes) and eel baskets that washed ashore when the legendary canoe Araiteuru was wrecked. Either way, the boulders, some of which stand alone and some in Outdoor, Nature, New Zealand, Moeraki Boulders, Sea Floor, New Zealand South Island, Island, New Zealand Beach, Coast
