Awesome day out!

We had a great day out at Tiritiri with Fullers. It was a bumpy ride, but nothing anyone can do about an easterly swell. Our ferry driver on the way home was amazing, and did his/her utmost to avoid some of the worst bumps. The day itself on Tiri exceeded all our expectations, only wish we had known about the little tractor that took the bags up to the visitors centre (I'm not sure if this runs every time the ferry goes?). Thank you to all the volunteers that make it such a great experience. We will be back!

We never got to go. We'd prepaid and Fullers lost the contract and didn't tell us. Absolutely disgusting.

Tiritiri Matangi Island

We visited here in the weekend and had an amazing day out. Our kids both thoroughly enjoyed themselves, we had the most lovely guide and saw many rare birds. So inspiring to hear how they have restored the island to what it is today. Our day finished off with a swim at Hobbs Beach was perfect. We would love to come again!
