Ulva Island

This open island sanctuary provides a home to New Zealand’s rarest native birds. The beautiful rainforest is alive with the sound of birdsong, offering visitors a glimpse of what New Zealand would have been like before predators were introduced.

We recommend at least 2-3 hours to explore the forest tracks, which are well marked and maintained.

Ulva Island Birdwatching

This predator free open sanctuary offers incredible bird spotting opportunities
including the South Island Saddleback and the Yellowhead (Mohoua)
