Aroha Island

177 Rangitane Road Rangitane Kerikeri - Bay of Islands

Wifi Internet Access Non Smoking Carpark access

Aroha Island offers bush cottage, lodge accommodation and a sheltered beachside campground in a 12 ha nature and bird sanctuary. The Island is connected to the mainland by a causeway and is only 12km north-east of Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands.

North Island Brown Kiwi use Aroha Island as their wild habitat home and guests have the opportunity to hear and see them at night either on a guided or self guided walk (November to July). Other rare birds also live and visit Aroha Island.

Aroha Island offers a delightful setting for weddings and other functions and provides an inspiring venue for retreats, seminars and conferences. The Visitor Centre can also be used for various kinds of community meetings.

Aroha was re-opened on Dec. 16 2007 after thorough renovations by the newly established volunteer community group, Aroha Island Charitable Trust and with help from funders, countless volunteers and donations.

If guests are arriving later than 7pm, we would ask that the guests contact the office to make arrangements for late check-in.

    We had a wonderful time at Aroha Island. Very relaxing and so magical to do the night walks looking for kiwi. We didn’t see any but the excitement of possibly seeing one and just being out at night in the dark, listening to the night was very magical. The staff were so kind and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable.

    Beautiful place, very peaceful, the cottage was very comfortable. Went out for a walk at night to look for kiwi (managers provide red cellophane for torches) and found one very easily, though others the same night seem to have had less success. The camping ground also looks like a really good place.
