Day one - I can hear the birds – Start your five day adventure at Motuara Island, – the infamous bird sanctuary where you will have Robins, Tuis and Bellbirds cheering you on your walk – you might even see a kiwi (*disclaimer Kiwis are nocturnal and you will be safely back on the boat sipping wine by the time the kiwis are out).  This island gives you the rare chance to see an array of New Zealand’s native birds.
