Rotoroa Island

All year round. Book walks and accommodation before you come

Guided nature walks allow you to experience Rotoroa Island in a whole different way.

Not only will you be able to experience all the natural beauty and wildlife that our ecosystem has to offer, but you’ll be able to do it all while being guided by one of our knowledgeable and passionate island rangers. Guided walks depart at 11am from the Exhibition Centre at Home Bay. Cost is $20 per adult and $10 per child. The walk is suitable for all fitness levels (although it might be a little bit much for the really young ones), with only one small hill – just make sure you wear sturdy shoes! There is a maximum of 15 people per group, so please ensure you book before you come. Walks will happen every day that there is a morning ferry to Rotoroa Island.

Rotoroa Island sits right in the middle of Auckland's stunning Hauraki Gulf. Hiding just off the eastern coast of Waiheke Island, Rotoroa Island is visible from Coromandel on a clear day. It's just over an hour by ferry from downtown Auckland, but feels a whole world away from the noise of the city. Visit by scheduled ferry, private boat, charter, water-taxi, kayak, helicopter or seaplane.


The central part of the island (from the wharf in Home Bay to Ladies Bay) is mostly flat, so this gives reasonably easy access to lovely swimming beaches, grassland areas and our small museum and accessible public toilets. It’s important to note all paths on the island are loose metal and that the only accessible toilets are the ones located beside the museum. If you have questions on accessibility, please contact the visitor centre, plus check with Fullers360 so you are comfortable the ferry will be able to accommodate getting on and off the vessel.
