Things to do on Rotoroa Island include observing endangered bird and animal species who are free to wander throughout the Island. It is the visitors who are managed where they go and told how to behave. The local inhabitants set the pace, wekas are known to cheekly invite themselves into your accommodation to see what you are doing. There is a heritage trail, complete with a museum to wander through. Hiking, swimming and volunteering are encouraged and, for fishing enthusiasts, great spots to try your hand at catching your evening meal.
