Rotoroa Island’s manager Phil Salisbury invites you to a morning tea on the beautiful island that he grew up on as a child. Rotoroa Island was once New Zealand’s first treatment centre for alcohol and drug addiction. Now it’s an emerging wildlife sanctuary.

Phil will take you on a personalised walk and talk around the island, telling stories from his memories and stories of the island, from back when it was a Salvation Army treatment through to the work that’s happening on the island day.

Complimentary nibbles, tea and coffee are included (lunch isn’t included but you’re welcome to bring your own).

After the talk, there will be plenty of time to explore the island, including our award-winning museum.

Getting here:
360 Discovery ferries depart from downtown Auckland to Rotoroa 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 treads
- 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
