From near dawn to late afternoon, walk the 11km of walking tracks, this is for hardened walkers capable of covering the variety of habitats and challenging terrain with some beautiful beaches and bird watching stations.

Project Island Song's vision is the ecological restoration of the pest-free islands of Ipipiri in the eastern Bay of Islands to create an archipelago of sanctuaries that celebrates the native subtropical habitat, lush with vegetation and alive with birdsong.
