Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary is a mainland island Sanctuary in Picton harbour. A community led project; this safe haven is protected by a predator proof fence which keeps out introduced predators such as stoats, possums, cats and rats. The charity also has an extensive trapping regime which ensures any invaders are stopped. The Sanctuary is free to enter and is a charming hour to 1.5 hour walk with stunning views to the Queen Charlotte Sound and Picton Harbour. The ideal destination for a morning activity.
Access is by water only, so you will need to visit one of the water taxi operators on the foreshore. Some have scheduled trips to the Sanctuary, while others will need you to book. Prices start from $20 per person return.
