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.
