Come, See, Experience

There’s plenty to do here.
For many visitors, exploring the island is the most popular pastime. We always say that no visit is complete without a dip in the natural Kaitoke hot springs or a clamber up to the top of the Windy Canyon.
You'll find awesome art galleries, potteries & museums to visit – beautiful white sand ocean beaches, fantastic bush walks, some great dine out options and a huge range of activities to enjoy...
