Tiritiri Matangi Island
75 Minute Ferry from AKL CBD
Allow half a day to explore the island
Tiritiri Matangi Island is a wildlife sanctuary located 30km north east of central Auckland accessible by ferry. The island boasts an impressive array of native birds from Kiwi to Kokako as well as breathtaking scenery. You can choose to take a guided tour or guide your self around the island, we chose to do it ourselves. Highlights you must check out are Fishermans Bay and the Arches on the eastern side of the island as well as Hobbs Beach (a nice place to swim). Remember to bring plenty of food and water as there is none available to buy on the island and as the island is pest free make sure you don't bring any pests with you.
The island is a must visit for those of all ages and has something for everyone.
