Beautiful day. Amazing to see the native flora & fauna! Loved our guide and even had a send off from dolphins. Good for many fitness levels.
What Auckland must have been like before development. A must do for all visitors. Easy walking and prolific bird life. Great beach to relax and cool off. Cafe pretty good too.
An amazing place. Tour includes guided walks on the island to suit levels of fitness, but still expect uphill tramps. Free coffee, tea in the shop. You must take a packed lunch and wear suitable shoes.
Great place to go if you want to see native birds and get away from city life for a day. Would be advisable to bring water and food as the shop on the island has limited options available.
My daughter and I took a ferry ride here to join a rubbish collection team of volunteers. A vast amount of rubbish - glass bottles, plastics, netting, food wrappers etc - was picked up. This beautiful natural environment is worth preservation
