Large group visits should be booked through the Rotoroa Island
team on 0800 76 86 76; this is to ensure your visit doesn't clash
with other group bookings or with essential island conservation
work. Extra facilities, and tea and coffee, may be arranged for
large groups by liaising with our event manager.
SORRY! NO CAMPING OR DOGS
Unfortuntely camping is not permitted on the island, but accommodation is now available in one of
our 4* holiday homes, or our newly opened boutique hostel.
Rotoroa Island is a conservation estate and developing wildlife
sanctuary. Because of the risk to our endangered species, no dogs
are permitted on the island or its shoreline. To see what
biosecurity measures visitors must take before travelling to
