“Tiritiri Matangi is rich in Māori and European history with one of the most successful community-lead conservation projects in the world.”

See a variety of native birds on the walks on this pest-free island, as well as views of the surrounding islands.

Tiritiri Matangi means "looking to the wind" or "wind tossing about". The island is officially called Tiritiri Matangi Scientific Reserve, and is one of the most successful conservation projects in the world.

Unwanted predators have been eradicated, and the once-pastoral island has been replanted with native trees. Rare native birds as well as tuatara have been returned to its now-safe and restored habitats.

You can visit this open sanctuary, and see some of New Zealand's most endangered birds in the wild including takahē, kōkako, saddleback/tīeke and hihi/stitchbird.

This world renowned island sanctuary attracts more than 20,000 visitors annually.

The island is managed by DOC in partnership with Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi – a voluntary community group and major contributor to the success of Tiritiri Matangi as an open sanctuary.
