Bird Watching


Ornithologists – we are surrounded by an eco-marine haven where unique birdlife abounds.

Dusk at the Resort will bring the swooping Kereru, Tui and curious Weka. Your mornings will begin with a dawn chorus of native birds including the beautiful bellbird.

Across the Bay in which the Resort is located you will find three Cormorant breeding colonies.  Easily accessible by kayak or dinghy these birds provide year round entertainment – none more so when the young birds are learning to fly, swim and fish.

A trip to nearby Motuara Island will reward you with a glorious cross section of New Zealand birdlife, while a little further on, you will arrive at the only King Cormorant breeding colony in the world.


Trips can be arranged during your stay or view our Motuara Island package > Motuara Island Eco Tour
