Join one of our internationally renowned guides on a tour of Ulva Island/ Te Wharawhara, the world’s southern-most open bird sanctuary, combining native podocarp forest, picturesque sandy beaches, rocky outcrops and around 4.5 kilometres of easy walking track.
Declared pest-free in 1997, Ulva Island provides habitat where rare plants and endangered birds are allowed to thrive: enjoy a unique opportunity to spot Stewart Island robin, kakariki, saddleback, mohua (yellowhead), and, if you’re lucky, Stewart Island Brown Kiwi (Tokoeka).
Passionate about this open sanctuary’s inhabitants, as well as its unique forest habitat and cultural history, our guides will enhance your birding experience on this 3-4 hour guided tour.
