A great activity to start our Auckland trip
, Jan 2020
The trip was planned to visit Rangitoto Island, but because of the weather forecast, it changed to visit Brown Island which is in similar distance from St Heliers Bay. Hiking to the summit of the Brown Island was easy and we could see a volcanic crater rim. At the summit, we had an expansive view of the Hauraki Gulf and Auckland City. We kayaked close to 11km for the whole trip. St Heliers Bay has a nice beach, and there are a lot of restaurants around.

Brown's / Motukorea Island is a hidden gem here in Auckland and we're happy to hear to got to explore it! Often overlooked by its larger and younger neighbour Rangitoto. It's one of the oldest volcanoes in the Auckland volcanic field and today few people get the opportunity to visit as there is no public transport to the island. We feel very lucky to able to explore this volcanic island and share it's rich history with locals and travellers.
