Tiritiri Matangi Island and Guided Walk

Surrender your senses to the beauty and magic of Tiritiri Matangi Island, situated in the Hauraki Gulf and only a 75-minute ferry trip from Auckland (via Gulf Harbour).

From the moment you step onto the island until the moment you leave, you will be entranced by the serenade of gentle birdsong and the lush native bush. Tiritiri Matangi is one of the world's most successful volunteer conservation projects. It has been re-planted with around 300,000 native trees; as a result, 12 of New Zealand's endangered birds and three reptile species have been re-introduced.

Experience a guided walk provided by the Supporters. Tiritiri Matangi, meaning "tossed by the wind," is an open scientific reserve managed by the Department of Conservation in conjunction with the Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi. The "open sanctuary" status allows thousands of visitors to witness firsthand some of New Zealand's rarest inhabitants in a natural and protected environment.

Please Note: This is an 8-hour excursion that does not include lunch. You may purchase a light lunch PRIOR to boarding the ferry in Auckland. Information on where to buy lunch will be provided with the meeting instructions for this excursion. This is not a transfer tour. Tour does not drop off at the airport. Tour vehicle cannot accommodate luggage.

This was my favourite excursion of the whole trip. Absolutely stunning and serene surroundings. I saw more birds here than any other place in my life. And our tour guide was a great young dynamic student who was very knowledgeable.
