The Motu Kaikoura Trust is proud to announce the official opening of their new lodge building on Saturday 23 March 2019.

 The lodge has been built by ‘Women+Architecture’ in Auckland, transported by barge to Great Barrier, helicoptered on to the site, and then assembled by the women and professional builders.

We feel that this has been a great achievement for the architects (who won an architectural award for this design at the Architectural Awards 2018) and that this is a great opportunity to showcase what has been achieved since the purchase of the island in 2005.

A charter boat has been booked, which leaves from Sandspit, Warkworth at 9 am sharp.
