Visiting Tiritiri MatangiTiritiri Matangi is an easy day trip by scheduled ferry service from Auckland. In order to make it an enjoyable experience and so as not to unduly disturb the wildlife, the number of people on the ferry is strictly limited. In summer the ferry gets booked days in advance so it pays to book early.
As well as wonderful wildlife Tiritiri Matangi has a lighthouse, a Visitor Centre some great walks and views and beaches. Most visitors start with a guided walk which finishes at the Visitor Centre where free tea and coffee is provided. There are plenty of tables outside to have your lunch and if it is wet there is plenty of room in the Visitor Centre.
In the afternoon you may want to explore some of the east coast, relax around the Visitor Centre or head for Hobbs Beach for a swim.
