Today we took a ferry to Tiritiri Matangi Island, a wildlife sanctuary. The predator free island is home to many endangered birds, 87 in total have been observed on or near the island.

We spent several hours walking around the island looking at the birds and the fauna. Picnic lunch was taken overlooking the sea and neighbouring islands. We walked up to the lighthouse and took in the distant views of Auckland city centre and down the peninsular.
