Do not go out of your way to see this! It is a cheesy gimmick created in probably half an hour in order to get something "notable" on the map. However, such is Rarotonga island, that if you're here for more than a day you're bound to come across it—and enjoy a wry smile—because there's so (blissfully) little to see... More

Very clever, I had seen this before when I stayed at the Pacific resort some years ago. I had meant to make my own in New Zealand but like all good intentions I have yet to do it. Who knows now I have seen it again I might just do it'

I only just noticed the rock as we walked up the beach. Very funny and of course very true. Worth taking a photo to add to your collection. Might even make one for my backyard.

This is the funniest thing and accurate too. When rock is wet it's raining and swinging it's windy. We had both unfortunately.

Found it as we strolled along the beach up from our accomodation. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it, but if your walking along the beach at Muri, it will give you a chuckle.

My son had never seen this before so he thought it was fun. The weather rock was a short stroll from where we stayed.
