Other things to note
Don't miss the unique experience of our 'White Heron Sanctuary Tour'. We love to share the untouched beauty of the Waitangi-roto Nature Reserve with visitors and see their delight at viewing the magnificent White Heron - Kotuku in their only New Zealand nesting site. (Nesting season is typically September through until the end of February/early March.)
Outside of the nesting season our 'Rainforest Nature & Jetboat Tour' is a popular choice... walk amongst stands of ancient Kahikatea rainforest within the Waitangi-roto Nature Reserve and explore its abundant flora and fauna. Enjoy crystal clear rivers, stunning views of the coastline & the snow capped Southern Alps.
