It was a lovely day for a boat trip, we had a fascinating volunteer guide, a lovely walk around the island, enjoyed the shop, would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in wildlife and ecology. This trip would be less enjoyable in the rain, as there is little cover and the 1&1/2 hour boat trip would be trying in bad weather.

This was the first thing I did when visiting Auckland and it was a truly awesome experience. The island was really unique in that there were such a large range of endemic birds living there. There was also great variety in plants and trees which gave the island a lot of additional color. The day I went, it was a... More

I cant believe this fantastic island and the wonderful people who have brought it back to being a lovely habitat for native NZ birds. So delighted. Had a lovely day on the island and only found out once on the island that you can book a bunk bed and stay the night in the DOCs hut. I would recommend this... More

I have previously reviewed this location when I did a day trip. This time I stayed overnight and would recommend it. We did the guided walk again as my wife had not previously been to the island. Spent the afternoon, when the school groups had left, exploring on our own - felt like we were the only people there. That... More

One of the best experiences of our trip to Australia and NZ. Volunteers have done a brilliant job in revegetating an island off Auckland. They have introduced many endangered species of birds and created a truly wonderful place . Our volunteer guides were brilliant, giving us a real insight into many birds and trees on the island. This is a... More

spent the day, and love it. you need to be patient and quiet, and you 'll see plenty of native bird. Bring plenty for water and food, as the island is wild and nothing can be bought on eat. don't forget your camera and a microphone to catch teh bird songs!

Ok so this isn't the first time I've been to Tiri, but I had an evening engagement in Auckland so flew up early so that I could have the day on the Island. A bit choppy on the boat out and it rained at the end of the day but that's no big deal. Lots of bird activity at the... More

Take a picnic lunch, enjoy the birdlike, wander the island, have a swim, check out the lighthouse and relax on the ferries. "Look it's a black back gull"

Tiritiri Matangi is an island in the Hauraki Gulf that has been made a predator-free natural reserve for New Zealand bird species, many of which are severely threatened on the mainland. The island has been revegetated with native plants and it teems with birdlife. For anyone who is a birdwatcher, or who simply wants to have a glimpse of nature... More
