Adele Island is a strikingly beautiful island and is predator free. It is home to many native New Zealand birds and the west side of the island has some great beaches which shift with the tide. With rapidly growing numbers of native birds, the bird chorus is like the birdsong early explorers heard. We donate 10 cents per person each time the parks foreshore is crossed. The funds are working towards the forest and beaches of Abel Tasman being once again filled with birdsong that awakens and delights visitors.
Anchoring off Adele Island is a great place to hear the progress the birds are making.
