Department of Conservation —  02/07/2014

Kapiti Island is host to one of the largest accessible island bird sanctuaries in New Zealand and deserves to be enjoyed by as many of us as possible.

Kapiti Island.

To encourage you to visit Kapiti Island permit fees have been reduced:

–  If you’re an adult the permit fee is now $10 (down from $28.75).

–  If you’re 17 or under you don’t have to pay a permit fee at all.

Kapiti Island is only one hour from Wellington, and boasts a unique environment populated with birds and wildlife rarely seen on the mainland.
