Tiritiri Matangi Island is a must see for Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts. Watch variety of unique birds and reptiles. Later have a relaxing time in the nearby Hobbs Beach, if lucky get to see Penguins too.
When to visit:
january - december
00:00 - 23:59 Everyday
There is no food for sale on the Island, so day visitors need to bring their own lunches and snacks, and overnight visitors need to bring food for evening meals and breakfasts as well.
Guided tour can enable you to spot species of birds which a normal eye could miss. It is suggested to head to Hobbs Beach, just a short walk from the ferry dock, to take a swim and spy on blue penguins in their nesting boxes.
