Rotoroa Island Coastal Walk

We are taking you off track and around the coastline for this weekend's coastal adventure, discovering the magical flora and fauna along the way. Island caretakers Kevin and Toni will show you a unique side of the island over a 3-hour walk from Men's to Mai Mai Bay. Also joining you is Auckland Zoo's field conservation coordinator Claudine Gibson, who will lead in rock pool exploration while sharing stories and information about the seabirds being attracted to Rotoroa Island.
Be prepared to get wet, dirty and have heaps of fun!
You will need a packed lunch, gloves (optional: for sharp shells and rocks), closed footwear and a water bottle.
The island is great for swimming so togs and towel are a must too.
Meet at Men's Bay, 1pm.
Suitable for medium fitness walkers - 8 years and older.
Weather dependant (backup date 31 March).
