Birding Package

Luxury accommodation, gourmet dining and a great variety of local habitats make this a great location for birders. The Resurgence has many birds on the property and partners with knowlegeable ornathologists, photographers and guides. Take 3 day trips to different New Zealand landscapes - the mountains of the Kahurangi National Park, the coastal Abel Tasman, estuarine birds around the Waimea Inlet and the migratory wading birds of Farewell Spit.

Learn about conservation and re-introduction of kiwi and whio from Peter, your host, who is active on the Committee of local community conservation group Friends of Flora.
