North Island Brown Kiwi inhabit this area and we have a couple of resident kiwis on Aroha Island.
Our kiwi can often be heard calling at night as they leave their burrows and forage the island for food.
Guests who stay on the island can take a self-guided walk at night to try and spot them in the wild.
Our staff will advise you on where you might have the best chance of seeing them and guests records their sightings for future visitors to use as a guide.
Lots of patience and perseverance will give you the best chance of seeing these precious creatures in the wild.
