Visiting Pomona Island

Pomona Island is an accessible location to see and hear birds native to Fiordland. It is situated about half way across Lake Manapouri and is classified as an "Open Sanctuary". Access is by boat with the main landing places located in the aptly named Hurricane Passage.

The Trust asks anyone visiting Pomona Island to do a couple of simple checks before leaving the mainland (whether that is the boat launch location or if you are visiting Pomona having spent time elsewhere on Lake Manapouri). Please ensure that your visit does not result in any unwanted pests such as stoats, rats, mice and seeds reaching the island. Please check your gear and your boat, kayak or jetski for any unwanted nasties.

There are marked tracks on Pomona which are used by the Pomona Island Charitable Trust for management purposes such as checking traps and monitoring birdlife. The tracks are rough in nature and are NOT graveled. The island is steep in places with lots of uneven ground and in some places the tracks are hard to follow if you are not familiar with the island.

The Trust takes no responsibility for visits to the island by members of the public.
