Location: Kapiti Island is 5km offshore from the coast at Paraparaumu about 50km north of Wellington. Boats run from the beach beside the Kapiti Boating Club rooms.
Kapiti Island is a sanctuary for native birds. Birds like Kaka, Tui and Bellbird are numerous but rare birds like the Whitehead, Saddleback or flightless Takahe can be seen too. Take the coastal track to the north of the island or walk to the summit. See http://www.nzbirds.com/Kaptiisland.html and http://www.kapititours.co.nz/kapiti.htm
