Motutapu Island in the Hauraki Gulf is one of the must-see's of Auckland. It is a stunning pastoral island in the middle of the Hauraki Gulf offering beautiful beaches, magnificent rolling hills and farmland, and a vast range of scenic walks for trampers.
You have two ways of arriving on Motutapu. Seasoned trampers (not suitable for young children) will enjoy the challenge of the 3 hour walk from Rangitoto across a causeway onto Motutapu. It's an incredible tramp with a sudden scenery change - from the black volcanic rock of Rangitoto to the lush rolling farmland and wetland of Motutapu. Make sure you take plenty of water and some food to keep you going on your walk.
Alternatively, get the ferry directly to Home Bay on Motutapu and enjoy the Department of Conservation campground there as a base for enjoying some of the walks on the North and Easterly side of the Island. This is a better route if you are including children in your walking party.
The campground has toilets and fresh water.
