From New York to the top of Kapiti Island
A friendly Kaka stopped off to say hi to New York visitor Mandy Dixon during her recent visit to Kapiti Island.

Mandy Dixon of New York made the most of a recent visit to Kapiti and rounded out the holiday with a trek to the summit of Kapiti Island.

"There was so much to do in Kapiti and the trip to the Island was certainly a highlight," said Ms Dixon.

"During the stay we visited Southwards Car Museum, Queen Elizabeth Park, went to the top of Paekakariki Hill for stunning views as well as visiting Nga Manu Nature Reserve and plenty of Kapiti cafes and restaurants."

A visit to Kapiti Island so often referred to as the jewel in the crown of the Kapiti Coast - should be on everyone's list.

The Island experience is superb. If you haven't been, I highly recommend a visit. If you have been you will know how lovely it is there and have no doubt encouraged others to visit.

A trek to the top is well worth the hike and the views are magnificent from up there. The Island is really is a step back in time to how New Zealand was long ago with the proliferation of so many native bird species as well as a truly diverse native bush.

The talk at the start from Jenny Fraser of Kapiti Explorer was excellent and very informative.
