A Unique Setting for an Unforgettable Experience


Motutapu, Maori for "sacred island", is an island in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. It can be reached in 30 minutes by fast ferry from downtown Auckland, New Zealand's largest city. Motutapu is adjoined via land-bridge to Auckland's most iconic island, Rangitoto. Administered by the Department of Conservation, the pair of islands forms a pest free recreation reserve that not only plays host to thousands of locals and tourist visitors each year, but is also home to some of the country's endangered bird species such as Takahe, Saddleback (Tieke), and even Kiwi.

Motutapu Outdoor Education Camp is located in a bay in its own private valley on the coast of Motutapu Island. Visitors to the camp not only have access to the facilities within the 4 hectares of the camp property, but also have the luxury of being able to explore more than 3800 hectares of DoC managed scenic reserve over both Rangitoto and Motutapu Islands. Both islands are covered in native flora and fauna and dotted with archaeological, geographical, and environmental marvels.
