Book your ticket to Tiritiri Matangi Island, a wildlife sanctuary for New Zealand’s native birds and an important conservation project. Visitor numbers are limited in order to protect the island’s wildlife. Begin this 8-hour excursion in Auckland city with a 75-minute ferry ride across the Hauraki Gulf to the island preserve. Explore the island at your leisure, walking along the trails and enjoying the coastline after a ranger orientation. Enjoy informative displays at the visitor center and a complimentary cup of coffee or tea during your visit. See the lighthouse, and in warmer months, head to Hobbs beach for a swim before the return ferry ride to Auckland.
