Tiritiri Matangi Island
Tiritiri Matangi Island is both a stunning wildlife sanctuary for New Zealand’s native birds and an important conservation project.
Located in the Hauraki Gulf, this predator-free island is a 75-minute ferry ride from the downtown Auckland ferry terminal.
A trip to Tiritiri Matangi is a full-day activity due to the Fullers 360 ferry timetable and travel time to the island from downtown Auckland. Bookings are recommended.
