Join our internationally renowned guides on a tour of Ulva Island/Te Wharawhara, the world’s southern-most open bird sanctuary. The guided walk combines native podocarp forest, picturesque sandy beaches and rocky outcrops along 4.5 kilometres of easy walking track.
Pest-free since 1997, Ulva Island provides a habitat where rare plants and endangered birds can thrive. Enjoy the unique opportunity to spot Stewart Island robin, kakariki, saddleback, mohua (yellowhead), and, if you’re lucky, Stewart Island Brown Kiwi (tokoeka).
Our guides are passionate about this open sanctuary’s inhabitants, as well as its unique forest habitat and cultural history. They will enhance your birding experience on this 3-4 hour guided tour. If you’re on a tight schedule, a shorter 2-hour option is also available.

After your tour, why not head back to Ulva Island to explore it at your own pace on a Freedom Walk?
