A wonderful opportunity to experience the beautiful Hauraki Gulf on the way to a world class bird sanctuary.
We were well looked after on the ferry & ashore, with plenty of opportunity to seek out the wildlife.
The educational facilities on the island insured we came away better informed about the wonders of our native wildlife.

If you are a tourist book this trip it will be well worth it. We went during the day and it was amazing, walked all over the island and saw incredible bird life and had a great picnic lunch. Its a few kms to walk about 7 I think. So wear appropriate clothing. Ferry from either the city or drive up to Gulf Harbour like we did and its half the price. Bookings essential and ferrys don't run all day. If you arrange it in advance you can stay the night and go out and see Tuatara's which are our oldest lizard and very cool.

Tiritiri Matangi is an amazing place. For those with a keen eye for nature, this is paradise. When you get there the birdsong will blow you over, along with the amazing range of other species. The guided walk makes the experience even better, with a guaranteed history of the island. The visitor centre sells souvenirs, and the volunteers should show you which on is best. When up near the lighthouse, look out for Takahe, a flightless New Zealand bird that steals your lunch. Your overall visit to Tiritiri Matangi should be well enjoyed.
