Over Summer, a few months ago in March we were very excited to have our first chance to tramp around the this gorgeous little island! So continuing our Club's annual give back to the environment of Motuihe Island over the Winter months, we're back again for 2019.
It's very well organised, so there is choice of planting, or working in the nursery and then after the yummy bbq sausages and tea and coffee that the organisers provide at lunchtime, we usually head off to one of the tracks to spot many native birds and if really lucky sunbathing Tuatara's before heading back down to catch the ferry home!
(FULLERS CHANGE AS AT 7PM 29TH APRIL 2019!!!) -
PLEASE PHONE FULLERS DIRECTLY 093679111 TO BOOK "PLANTERS" TICKET/S & SPECIFY IF LEAVING FROM TOWN OR DEVONPORT).
(Cancellations: Subject to weather - please ring 08006688443 after 7 am on the day to check for cancellations. Important over winter months, if the weather is really inclement. We've often still gone to the island on a wild day and had an amazing time).
Bring your camera/phone as the sea views all around you on this little island are gorgeous!
** Non-members if you board at town, we will gather on the island when they do their island welcome & bio-security talk.
Very importantly, read the below link for Island Bio-Security to protect this treasure island).
