What do you think about the newly announced festival on Motutapu?
Island Time on Motutapu is a festival to be held over the last weekend in February and is set to feature a smorgasbord of food and drink vendors and music artists.
Festival-goers will be treated to a day long festival on either February 27 or 28 on the island. Tickets range from between $65 to $85, with a portion of ticket sales going towards to wildlife conservation.
Billy Brown, the deputy chairman of Ngāi Tai Ki Tamaki, said that it is an excellent opportunity to showcase the culture of the island and for them to educate visitors about volunteer opportunities on Motutapu.
“In the end, we want a calendar of events on the island, covering sports, arts, food – all of it," he said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.
