Matiu Somes Eco TrekHiking

Matiu Somes Eco Trek

Matiu Somes Island, in the center of Wellington Harbor, has been many things: an internment camp during World War Two, an animal quarantine center, and a pā site for Whānganui-a-Tara Māori. Today it is a reserve for some of New Zealand’s most iconic wildlife. Wander around the island looking out for tuatara, Cook Strait Weta, and native birds such as Little Blue Penguins before taking a ferry back to the city.
