Sit back, relax and listen to the native birdsong. Wood pigeons, tuis, fantails, silver eyes frolicking in the Pohutukawa and Puriri trees and flightless, cheeky Wekas can be seen around the bush. At the water’s edge, kingfishers, grey herons, oyster catchers, ducks and gulls forage for food and as dusk falls the calls of the little blue penguins, NZ icon, the “Kiwi” and mooreporks can be heard across the bay.

Kayaks are available for guests to explore the sheltered inlets of North Cove and in settled conditions venture further afield to Bon Accord Harbour and Mansion House. If a walk is the order of the day, there are several walks on Kawau Island. From Kawau Lodge a short walk up through the bush to the ridgeline where you can enjoy a pleasant walk through Manuka forest. There are several other walks on Kawau and your hosts can assist you in the right direction.
