Celebrate summer with a unique encounter at a working wildlife sanctuary in the Hauraki Gulf, Rotoroa Island.

Every day from December 26th to January 15th, zoo rangers and education staff will be running two family-friendly wildlife encounters on this pest-free island in the Hauraki Gulf. The rich diversity of native species on Rotoroa Island are closely monitored and managed by Rotoroa Island Trust and Auckland Zoo, and this is your official invitation to join them this summer for a fun and educational experience.

Getting here:
360 Discovery ferries depart from downtown Auckland to Rotorua Island on a regular basis. The trip takes just over an hour, with a stop-off at Waiheke's Orapiu wharf on the way. You can also get to Rotoroa Island by ferry from Coromandel.

What to bring:
- Your own food and plenty of water as there are no shops on the island
- Walking shoes, sunblock and a sun hat
- Swimming gear and towels

Biosecurity Information:
Before you visit please:
- Check your bags thoroughly for rodents, insects (especially ants) and other pests prior to boarding the ferry
- All bags must be sealed - plastic bags, open top bags and supermarket bags are easy for pests to access so please leave these at home
- Carry food in sealed, rodent-proof plastic containers and take your rubbish home
- Check your footwear is clean and that there is no soil or seeds in laces or threads
- Leave your bicycle at home and if you're bringing a buggy, make sure your tyre treads aren't packed with dirt or insects
- Leave your dog on board your vessel if visiting by boat as no dogs or domestic animals are permitted as they may endanger the island's wildlife, particularly shore birds
