  • Beautiful island to visit. You hardly have to look for the birds on the island, they are all around you. The bush walks on the island are very nice and are always accompanied by the cheerful chirps of the birds that you have just been educated about. Kapiti island is a great place to take your family for the day. I highly recommend visiting if you are in the area.
  • Kapiti island, Its all about the journey not the destination. As you walk in the bush, stopping along the way, being still , being quiet and listening is when the magic happens… flora and birds in abundance.
