Join the Ōtamahua Quail Island Ecological Restoration Trust for a 2-3 hour guided walk of the island on 14th or 15th Oct, after which you will be free to explore on your own.
Ōtamahua/Quail Island has a complex human history. Long before Europeans arrived in Aotearoa/New Zealand Maori visited the island. It was farmed, it became a human and animal quarantine station, a leper colony, mined for ballast, a base for four Antarctic expeditions and is now undergoing ecological restoration.
