Rangitoto - a treasure island in the Hauraki Gulf

Rangitoto Island is the youngest and largest of Auckland's volcanoes, and is the only volcano of its type in New Zealand. It is administered by the Department of Conservation in conjunction with the Tangata Whenua Nga Tai and Ngati Paoa. Rangitoto is a public reserve. Much of the island is covered in pohutukawa forest with a huge variety of plant life beneath the sheltering canopy of the trees. Recently pest-free, there are plans to turn Rangitoto into a wildlife sanctuary.
