Mokoia - The Sacred Island
Kia ora tatou,
It is a privilege to welcome you to the private and sacred island of our Te Arawa people – Mokoia Island. Mokoia has a spiritual sense that can be experienced the moment you set foot on this magical island and with Mokoia Island Wai Ora Experiences you too can share in this unique historical landmark.
Fringed with Pohutukawa trees and native bush, Mokoia Island is a sanctuary to many of New Zealand's endangered birds and wildlife. Take a boat cruise with Mokoia Island Wai Ora Experiences to hear and see rare New Zealand birds such as the Kokako, Tui and Saddleback, there are also 8 resident Kiwi’s on Mokoia Island.
Take a bush walk and see amazing birdlife, native flora and fauna, enjoy a natural hot spa or a Maori cultural encounter. Bathe in Hinemoa's Pool, and learn about local Maori legends, including the famous forbidden love story of Hinemoa and Tutanekai, New Zealand’s own Romeo and Juliet.
Mokoia Island is also a popular gathering spot for conferences, functions, team building exercises, special events and weddings. We are able to cater for locals, tourists, school field trips, conferences and large groups.
