  • Beautifully preserved piece of New Zealand History. Catch the ferry to the island and wander around freely enjoying the scenery. The island has an interesting history which is explained in the museum and colonial buildings that are perfectly restored and maintained. Enjoy the birdlife and see how the islands bird breading program is coming along. Bring a picnic or use the BBQ area and catch the ferry back when you are ready to head home.
  • A fantastic day trip. The island and it's beaches are stunning. Moderate, yet very scenic walk from one end of the island to the other. Lovely picnic spots. A worth while visit. Access by ferry only.
  • The island is simply beautiful - you feel like you are there all by yourself. The hiking trails are really well marked, and it's easy to do most of the walking in two hours. The beaches, especially Men's Bay, are just stunning. There is a water fountain in the main area but bring your own lunch. I did feel that you get almost too much time to spend there waiting for the ferry back.
  • Stunning island with walking tracks overlooking the beautiful Auckland harbour. For only a 75 minute ferry ride away from the CBD, this island is one of Auckland's best kept secret. Definitely worth checking out the Ladies Bay, North Tower and South Tower for awesome views.
