Restoring native forest on an Island near Auckland

After travelling by ferry to the island, you will be asked to walk to a planting site and help to plant native trees. The walk is about 15 to 20 minutes. No where on Motuihe is steep so the walking is easy.


Average level of fitness. We provide all training and equipment. Bring your lunch and a drink. We provide tea, coffee and Milo. Wear strong flat shoes and appropriate gardening clothing. The planting day is free but you do have to pay for the ferry.

Time commitment:

The ferry leaves Westhaven Marina at 9 am and returns at approx. 5.15 pm so this is an all day activity.
