Planning a visit to the bird island sanctuary of Tiritiri Matangi is made effortless through Whangaparaoa Lodge's Education Adventure Package.
With one phone call to make the reservation the accommodation on the Spa Studio or upstairs Deluxe room is made, with reservations for the ferry to the island, after a sumptious cooked breakfast, packed lunch and a transport to the ferry terminal in Gulf Harbour if required.
Once on the island you can surrender your senses to the beauty and magic of the man made sanctury - a truly unique and unforgettable experience searching for some of New Zealand's most rarist aviary life. The guided tour provided for just $5.00 per person is a must for first timers. Getting to know the lay of the island and where to go and how to spot the birds is taught during the tour by the Island voluntees. The history of the island too is a fantastic story.
Finish the afternoon exploring the island on your own, taking a swim in one of the beautiful beaches, or simply relaxing listening to the sounds of the birds.
A wonderful day out, anytime of the year and topped off with the fabulous accommodation at Whangaparaoa Lodge.
