Things to do at Kawau Lodge
Sit back, relax and listen to the native birdsong. Wood pigeons, tuis, fantails, silver eyes frolicking in the Pohutukawa and Puriri trees and flightless, cheeky Wekas can be seen around the bush. At the water’s edge, kingfishers, grey herons, oyster catchers, ducks and gulls forage for food and as dusk falls the calls of the little blue penguins, NZ icon, the “Kiwi” and mooreporks can be heard across the bay.
Enjoy the outdoor seating areas where you can sunbathe, or read a book or magazine from our library. We also have several board games, petanque or a dart board available for your enjoyment.
Kayaks are available for guests to explore the sheltered inlets of North Cove and in settled conditions venture further afield to Bon Accord Harbour, Mansion House and Vivian Bay.
If a walk is the order of the day, there are several walks on Kawau Island. From Kawau Lodge take a short jaunt up through the bush to the ridgeline where you can enjoy a pleasant walk through native forest. There are several other walks on Kawau and your hosts can assist you in the right direction.
