Travel to Quail Island is by boat from Lyttelton Harbour. The harbour is formed from an extinct volcano and the scenery is beautiful. On reaching Quail Island it is possible to walk around the island by a well formed pathway. You can enjoy the vistas from many points and it is great to picnic en route. This makes a perfect days outing at any time in the year weather permitting. There are information posters providing the history of the island which are well worth reading. I would recommend thoroughly.
