We took the ferry and the optional guided tour, and enjoyed our visit a great deal. The ferry trip is fun, offering great views of other islands and the surroundings. Our tour guide was very well informed and interesting, and we saw a number of different bird species and learned a great deal about NZ ecology and the current efforts... More

We have done the whole island loop - the signs say it takes about 4 hours, but it took us less than 3. When you get off the ferry, just make a run for the loop. Most people are going to do the guided tour, so if you start fast, you will practically have the island to yourself. We only... More

Having first visited this island over 20 years ago, I still get a kick out of every visit and am constantly amazed at the development of this pest free island. By development I mean the natural landscape and introduction and breeding of native flora and fauna. This is a must visit when in Auckland, a fantastic day trip from Downtown.

What a wonderful place! Gentle ferry ride via Gulf Harbour to the island. We had a fantastic guide who identified many many birds and other features for us. An easy walk to the lighthouse where we had lunch and then a stroll down to the beach. What a great way to spend a day. Worth every cent, we would recommend... More

My wife and I made sure we could fit a day on Tiritiri Matango into our two week New Zealand vacation. It was a fabulous day and we saw far more birds that day than we did during our entire two week tour of the South Island. The reclamation of Tiritiri Matango is a wonderful initiative to restore at least... More

Tiritirir Matangi Island is a MUST see for any visitor to Auckland - especially on a beautiful day! We had the most glorious day to visit. The abundant bird life was amazing. It gave you a sense of what the bird life was once like in New Zealand. We had a great guide too - for an extra $10 the... More

Kept pest free, this island is a gem in the Hauraki gulf . After walking through native bush to the top, swim in the beautiful clear waters before going home.
