Your eco guide points out the varied native plant and birdlife including the rare Buff Weka, a very inquisitive flightless bird, (extinct on mainland NZ since 1920) on the 30 minute walk up to the island's secret - a lake on top of an island - the serene Arethusa pool.

We have 'high tea' on the summit overlooking the two lakes below with a panorama of the Southern Alps - geologically unique and very photogenic.

Plant a native tree & give back to NZ & this special island.
