Located only an hour from Auckland the Pukorokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre is an excellent stop to escape the city and have a look at some of New Zealand’s amazing birdlife. With nearly half of the population of the endemic Wrybill found at Pukorokoro Miranda during part of the year, and with numbers of shorebirds often exceeding 10,000 the coastline is almost a mandatory stop for any birdwatcher passing by. Visit the Shorebird Centre and find out what birds are around, stay with us for a weekend escape from the bustle of the city or join us for one of our regular events.
Book in to one of our two school holiday sessions these holidays – Tuesday October 4th or Wednesday October 5th 10-12. Come and explore the shore with us, try out our fun new activity packs, and take part in an art activity! Bookings essential and children must be accompanied by an adult. Find out more
The Flock is a creative and fun project that will spread the message about the threats facing our migratory shorebirds and build support for their protection. Everyone can get involved by cutting out, painting or hosting bird gatherings that will grow, representing the cause through till March 2017. The flock has begun to assemble. Find out more!
