This attraction was included in our guided south tour. There is an entry fees of around 200-225 Mur for the park that includes seven colored earth along with the Chamarel Waterfall. After visiting the waterfall, one can proceed to the seven colored earth. We went in the evening and it started to drizzle a bit which added somewhat more charm... More

Very hot during summer, a lot of mosquito. There are a few giant tortoise there too. We went with private tour and end up went to a restaurant that I think mainly for tourist as the restaurant looks like food court and a main course (small portion) cost around 25 aud which is over price. There are limited restaurant there,... More

Sunset is the nicest time to make photos. In mid-day the sun can be too harsh. Facilities are nice and the park is clean and tidy. Well worth a visit!

We visited here as part of a tour so were there for less than an hour which was more than enough. It was an interesting place - the seven colours are quite muted although showed up on our photos better.The giant tortoises are in an enclosure nearby which was quite muddy and seemed small for the number in there.

My wife more so than I was looking forward to our south Island tour which involved the visit to this national park. Sadly the ancient turtles were by far the best attractions despite there being five of these giants in a small "petting" area. As for the earth, dark dirt that didn't resemble any of the brochure pictures was bitterly... More

We probably should have researched more. We thought this would be a large area with hiking but it's really just a small area that's fenced off with the different colored dirts. It was cool to see but definitely a tourist trap.

Having seen photos on the Internet, I was already fairly sure what to expect, however it was a part of our tour so we went anyway. The 7 colours are all variations of brown - those interested in geology may find it fascinating, but for me it was just mounds of brown - probably didn't help that it had just... More
