Royal Albatross are only one of the attractions of Taiaroa Head. Breeding colonies of Shags, Royal Spoonbills, Blue Penguins and NZ Fur Seals are just some of the wildlife who call the place home. Pukekura (Taiaroa Head) is an important site to Kai Tahu whanui. And Fort Taiaroa, the European Fortification, has a disappearing gun that is world renowned.

Students have the opportunity to engage with experts, interact with the local history, view unique wildlife, and understand the cultural importance of the area. Opportunities to plant for penguins and contribute to other environmental actions are available throughout the year. Bookings/Visits may be declined during the busy tourism season from November – March each year.
