Of interest geographically & historically ,also the planting of native plants to replace ex-farming land. A visitor's observations of remaining artifacts are enhanced by information notices. There is a good track around the island.

A nice way to spend a day. Have seen many families enjoying the day there however I also enjoyed it (I don't have kids). You need to enjoy walking - as long as this isn't a problem then there is some history to see/read a nice wee beach where you can swim and have lunch and lovely views etc all round the island as you walk round it.

You get the Quail Island ferry over and can either just relax or walk around the island. No shops. Pick a nice day. Check the times of the ferries because there is only a couple a day.
