Tui Nature Reserve Wildlife Trust

Tui Nature Reserve is just one of those places you've got to see with your own eyes. Winners of the Marlborough 'Supreme Environment Award' in 2010, this showcase conservation project welcomes you to experience the unique sights and sounds of the lush forest that New Zealand is so famous for. Join us on a guided eco boat tour, giving you the opportunity to see the majestic coves, waterways and marine wildlife of the Pelorus in the Marlborough Sounds.

This will include a guided visit to Tui Nature Reserve. Immerse yourself in native New Zealand with bird song, outstanding ocean views, and an introduction to the native breeding for release programme.


In 2018 the Trust opened Koru Native Wildlife Centre with our major sponsor New Zealand King Salmon LTD, and also financial input of the Lottery Grants Board and Rata Foundation. The Trust believes public education and engagement with conservation is key to ensuring the survival of New Zealand’s many rare and endangered species and their habitats. By being more accessible to the public, it is hoped Koru Native Wildlife Centre can contribute more effectively to that education in a fun, and interesting way.
