    BEST WATER IN THE WORLD!!! Take your bottles and fill up folks. I’ve been doing this since I was a kid, for the last 25 years at least. Everytime I come home from travelling I can’t wait to pay a visit to the top of the Kaimais to stock up. Our council does not fluoridate our water supply either – we are so lucky to be close to this spring for drinking water AND to not have to bathe in medicated water!

    If fairies and unicorns are real, this would be the most likely place that you will encounter one… getting water from this spring is magical… even with the cars whizzing past! nothing like being there on a hot summers day with the sun coming through the trees to kiss the everflowing spring… and the water is divine! we make special trips to the kaimais just to collect this water <3

    This chilled, crystal clear water is beautiful. As regular commuters over the Kamais we stop & fill our 15 litre bottles every time. Nothing in this part of our country compares to this free oasis, and it only takes seconds to fill each bottle. A rear free gift of nature.

    Does anyone know where the water actually comes from? And if 1080 is dropped will it be affected?

  5. Joy Li says:

    Hello, I just learned about the wonders of spring water. Do you need to boil if you get from this spring?

  6. Rebecca says:

    Do you think this water is still safe to drink since the Kaimai’s has now been 1080’d? I’ve akways drunk it but am worried about it now
