    What to Expect
    Once a traditional pa site of Te Whanganui-a-Tara Maori, the island became a quarantine station, an internment camp, and a military defence position, it now seeks to protect and preserve New Zealand native flora and fauna.

    On the Island you guide will escort you as you circle the island on foot. Somes is now home to rare native birds including North Island robins, fluttering shearwaters and kakariki, a colony of little blue penguins and 6 species of native reptiles including the mysterious tuatara. Your guide will bring the history alive and help you find these shy wild creatures.

    Please note you will be asked to open and empty all bags etc for pest control purposes. Anything we take to the island we must also remove.
