Birds of a Feather Conservation Ball

Step back in time at this year’s 4th annual Birds of a Feather Conservation Ball at Walter Peak and support conservation in Tamatea/ Dusky Sound, Fiordland National Park.

Conservation is an intrinsic part of Real Journeys heritage and 100% of ticket sales this year go towards the Cooper Island Restoration Project.

When Māori and Captain James Cook lived and explored the Dusky Sound area some 240 years ago, the area was thriving with unique and native wildlife.  Join the mission to eradicate the introduced pests and bring back the birdsong, at a specially-designed 3-course gourmet dinner at the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant.
