Kawau Island

Who's been here? I went on a day trip once when I was much younger, but I don't have much recollection of it. Seeing as it was fine a couple of weekends ago, we went on a boat cruise out to the island, the Royal Mail Run. Being winter, it wasn't too busy, which resulted in an almost personal tour. The boat starts off at the northern end of the island, dropping off some passengers, then works its way down to the southern end. Mansion House is the main attraction, although like many things, is closed in winter. The views are nice, and we found it quite interesting seeing the houses dotted on the hillsides - without road access.
