The Chatham Islands are a special place to visit and lie 870 km east of the mainland and are 45 minutes ahead of New Zealand time. The locals are genuine, friendly and welcoming. Their isolation; changeable, moody climate; and a history that goes back to the Moriori, gives them a strong community spirit, a sense of independence and self-sufficiency that allows them to be at ease with their lot.With the Black Robin now thriving (once the world’s rarest bird), the magnificent Chatham Island’s Forget-Me-Nots, hospitality, meals and opportunity to fish for cod and grouper – this is a place to visit before you die!
