Motutapu on a Map

Motutapu is an island in New Zealand's Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. The Park is located on the north eastern coast of New Zealand's North Island alongside Auckland, our country's largest city. It is 1509 hectares in size and is a recreation reserve administered by the Department of Conservation, one of 220 islands looked after by the Department.

 Motutapu is joined by causeway to Auckland's iconic backdrop volcanic cone, Rangitoto. Rangitoto erupted out of the sea around 600 years ago and is the youngest volcano in the Auckland region.
