Protecting Waiheke Island's environment

Waiheke Island is one of more than 50 islands in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. We need your help to protect this treasured island and make it pest-free.

Before your stay at the hostel:

  • check your gear and footwear for stowaway pests like rats, mice, plague skinks and argentine ants
  • clean your gear and footwear to remove soil and seeds
  • seal your food in containers.

For more information, see Visiting the Hauraki Gulf Islands.
