can you get there by public transport or only a tour.
hi margaret, i basically asked the same question so here's what they said:
Hello there Ses
I have answered this email twice now however it doesn't seem to have been posted ?
Anyway there is two ways of getting to Orokonui
Contact the local i-site (Visitor Centre) or preferably
let us know what ship what day you arrive and we will collect you and return you to the ship or city whatever suits..We have a host of volunteers/staff/who can collect you from the Port. I am also happy to assist if required.look forward to hearing from you. travel safe..Regards
thank you for your response ,I posted the question just before we left for Dunedin but we finished going to I site and booking a young man Andrew, who picked us up and then at a suggested time came back for us, he not only told us the history of the area but stopped for a photo at the top of the lookout ,we loved the Eco sanctuary but realised it was larger than time would allow us but overall very enjoyable, and thanks again for Andrew who was most obliging
