What to expect

Our guided nature walks allow you to experience Rotoroa Island in a whole different way. Not only will you be able to experience all the natural beauty and wildlife that our ecosystem has to offer, but you'll be able to do it all while being guided by one of our knowledgeable and passionate island rangers.

The 90-minute guided walk covers a large part of the island and is one of the best ways to see an exciting range of different wildlife, including weka, tīeke (saddleback), takahē and pāteke (brown teal).

You'll learn all about the island's natural history, as well as our ongoing ecological restoration projects and the fascinating social history of Rotoroa Island. Along the way our rangers will also point out some of our native plant species and their uses, and explain all about our ongoing work to keep the island predator-free.

* The walk is suitable for all fitness levels (although it might be a little bit much for the really young ones), with only one small hill - just make sure you wear sturdy shoes!
* Please note this walk requires a minimum of 4 people to operate.

BOOK YOUR GUIDED WALK - Guided walks can be booked with your ferry ticket. If you are coming by private transport, or are interested in a private group walk, please contact our ranger directly on  [email protected].
