Reached by boat across Lake Wanaka, the remote island of Mou Waho is a hidden gem for both bird enthusiasts and beach-junkies. Predator-free, it is home to the rare Buff Weka, extinct on the mainland since 1920. Explore the island on foot with a one-hour guided walk which reveals the island’s secret, a lake at the very top with spectacular views over the Southern Alps. Enjoy ‘High Tea’ with the panoramic views and sounds of the birds. For those preferring a more leisurely pursuit, relax on the beach and enjoy the birdlife and tranquil surrounds. Taking around three and a half hours, this is a perfect morning or afternoon excursion to explore an area of great scenic beauty and excellent birdlife.
