Day Trip to Tiritiri Matangi Wildlife Sanctuary including Guided Walk (2 adults & 2 children)
Family adventure to visit an island bird sanctuary near Auckland.
See and hear some of New Zealand’s rarest birds on a one day gift experience to Tiritiri Matangi Island.
Tiritiri Matangi Island is a beautiful wildlife sanctuary for New Zealand's native and coastal birds situated in the Hauraki Gulf only a 75 minute ferry ride away from downtown Auckland (via Gulf Harbour). The island is a protected haven for native and endangered species, and is a nature lover’s paradise, particularly for avid birdwatchers. From the moment you step onto the island to the moment you leave, you’ll be serenaded by bird songs while exploring walking tracks through native bush and coastal forests.
As well as wonderful wildlife, Tiritiri Matangi has a 150 year old lighthouse, a Visitor Centre, some great walks, views and beaches. Most visitors start with a guided walk which finishes at the Tiritiri Visitor Centre where there are informative displays and a great gift shop with complimentary tea and coffee. All profits from the shop go back to supporting the conservation and education programmes on the island. There are plenty of tables outside to have your lunch and if it’s wet there’s plenty of room in the Visitor Centre.
The rest of the day is yours to explore the island as you wish. Family is 2 adults and 2 children
