These and more are waiting for you.

White Heron Colony - West Coast Whataroa is the departure point for tours to New Zealand’s only White Heron nesting site. For over 30 years the Arnold Family have been operating White Heron Sanctuary Tours and delighting visitors by sharing this world class attraction with them. The 2.5 hour tour consists of a short minibus ride to connect with a jet-boat for a gentle 20 minute scenic cruise into the Waitangiroto Nature

Reserve (area accessible by boat only). Once in the reserve there is a short walk through ancient Kahikatea rainforest to a purpose built viewing hide to observe the magnificent White Heron (Kotuku) in their natural nesting environment. White Heron Sanctuary Tours is the original and only tour to visit the White Heron nesting site. An exceptional tour with variety, suitable for all age groups.

New rules on all US-bound flights are set to come into effect, including stricter passenger screening to comply with government security measures. The move is designed to avoid expanding an in-cabin ban on laptops. Airlines say the new measures, which could include short security interviews with passengers, would be in place by Thursday. They will affect 325,000 airline passengers on about 2000 commercial flights arriving daily in the US, on 180 airlines from 280 airports in 105 countries, and industry trade group Airlines for America has said the changes might cause disruptions. The US announced the new rules in June to end the government's restrictions on carry-on electronic devices on planes coming from 10 airports in eight countries in the Middle East and North Africa in response to unspecified security threats. Those restrictions were lifted in July but the Trump administration said it could re-impose measures on a case by case basis if airlines and airports did not boost security.
