Gannets aren’t the only bird who call the Cape Kidnappers Peninsula home! 

Hundreds of little blue penguins burrow along the shoreline of the peninsula, inhabiting sand dune, coastal grasses and cliffside. In fact, the lower gannet colony shares terrain with penguin burrows. 

These gorgeous penguins are kept safe by the  pest control and habitat restoration work of the @cape_sanctuary team!

Did you know there’s not one, not two but three colonies at the Cape Kidnappers point! Located below the steep cliffs of the main colony is a slightly smaller seaside colony where gannets and fur seals share the rocky shore. Further along the point is the ‘saddle’ colony, a smaller collective only viewed from the main platform as erosion has rendered the cliff side impassable.

The currently empty nest sites at #Capekidnappers have us reminiscing about sweet spring moments like this.

The Overland Gannet Safari adventure travels through nationally Cape Kidnapper's station. Whilst gannets are at the centre of the show, witnessing the incredible landscape of the Cape Kidnappers peninsula and the land's farming history is a memorable experience in itself. Be greeted by hundreds of sheep and cattle, and,  if you're lucky catch working dogs in action across the steep hillsides.

The Cape Kidnapper's 20,000 strong Gannet Colony is Aotearoa New Zealand's largest accessible mainland colony and is a MUST DO for locals and visitors alike! Marvel at the beauty and sheer size of this incredible colony, perched above the daunting cliffs of the stunning Cape Kidnappers coastline.
