A very nice one day date with nature. Please prepare that there is no shop, no transport and limited drinking water in the island, do bring enough drinking water, sun block and wear comfortably. The summit track is about 1 hour walk and bring you the gorgeous 360 degree panoramic view of Auckland iconic landmarks. We found many special flora on the way that we never seen before, it's very impressive! No campsite in Rangitoto Island but at Home Bay, Motutapu Island which the neighbour island and you can walk to there if you want to see the sunset and spend a night there. There is also Fullers' Motutapu Island ferries run from Auckland to Home Bay.
