Seven hectares of mangroves and five hectares of basalt eruptions from the Rangitane volcano have formed this beautiful peninsula. North Island Brown Kiwi live on the island and they sometimes can be seen and heard at night.
Aroha Island is a natural haven with a wide diversity of New Zealand flora and fauna. If you love nature and have a desire to explore the unique plants and birds of New Zealand, you will enjoy our circular 30 minute discovery walking trail. A short diversion will take you to the island’s Mangrove Platform providing a look at these wonderful plants and the habitat they create. Please supervise children on the mangrove platform at all times. You might want to stop a while and enjoy a picnic at the beach!
At night, our guests staying on Aroha Island have the opportunity to look for kiwi in their natural habitat, with the excitement of walking our track and discovering our kiwi for themselves.
