Rotoroa island

Lovely day trip. Nice walks saw many native birds including the rare saddleback.

Stunning view

This is probably my favourite motu in Hauraki Gulf. But be aware that the ferry may be cancelled on departing day due to tides. So check before going to the port.

Birds and beaches.

Easy ferry trip out with friendly, helpful staff. I didn’t walk the whole island but did get to five beaches. Good views and plenty of bird life.

Perfect paradise day trip

Quick and easy ferry out to the island. We thought it was going to be a long day with the 3 kids in tow, but such a beautiful island paradise with so much to see and do. Loved reading about the history of the island and felt like we were the only ones there most of the time. Walks were mostly manageable with mountain buggy, and we packed with the steep bits. Highly recommend. Tropical island in Auckland!

Rotoroa Island - Amazing

An amazing experience. Well worth the cost (almost 1/2 the price of Tiritiri Matangi). The guided tour was informative and well put together.
