A luxury lodge at Matauri Bay is among the best in the world, according to readers of United States magazine Conde ´ Nast Traveler. Kauri Cliffs was rated the best lodge/resort in Australia and the Paci- fic in the magazine's 2010 reader's choice awards survey which 25,916 readers took part in.Readers also judged the five-star lodge the world's third best hotel in the top 100 hotels category, giving its location, design, rooms, dining, facilities, activi- ties and service a score of 98.4. Kauri Cliffs managing director Jay Robertson says the lodge is deeply grateful for the honour that the magazine and its readers have bestow- ed on it. Conde ´ Nast Traveler editor in chief Klara Glowczewska says its readers are an army of trusted judges whose endorsements are one of the highest accolades in the travel industry. Kauri Cliffs is owned by New Yorkers Josie and Julian Robertson who opened the lodge and its golf course in 2001. See the Bay close up at high speed All areas access: Fullers GreatSights Bay of Islands new high-speed boat The Excitor III. It thunders through the water at speeds of up to 50 knots, powered by four 300 horsepower V8 engines. But Fullers Great- Sights Bay of Islands new vessel Excitor III isn't just a high-speed boat. The 12.5-metre rigid- hull, inflatable vessel was designed and built by Circa Marine in Whangarei to allow its 35 passengers to have a close encounter with the bay. A retractable set of stairs in the bow allows passengers to disembark at any beach. It makes it possible for Fullers to take visitors to islands not accessible to larger boats. Fullers GreatSights Bay of Islands general manager Charles Parker says tourists want to experience the islands in an up close and per- sonal way''. Tours of the Bay on Excitor III offer an inti- mate experience with one of the most spectacu- lar regions in the count- ry. We wanted to design the product first and then the vessel to suit,'' he says. Fullers started using the boat for tours at Labour Weekend after a blessing by John Martin of Ngati Kuta earlier this month. A 90-minute high-speed adventure on the vessel includes a visit to the Hole in the Rock, Cathedral Cove and Cape Brett light- house. Wildlife brochure Wildlife guide: The brochure tells people how to look after marine mammals. What bird is that? How can I help keep the Bay of Islands pest-free? Those are two questions answered by a colourful new conser- vation brochure. DOC, Guardians of the Bay of Islands, Ngati Kuta and Patukeha have produced a guide to wildlife in the pest-free islands of Ipipiri (eastern Bay of Islands) which includes: Photos of sea and land birds already in the area, as well as birds that Project Island Song aims to bring back to the islands Drawings of whales, dolphins or seals that sailors, fishers and kaya- kers may see while on the water Information about regulations designed to protect wildlife Photos of stoat and rat footprints to allow people walking on beaches to help keep the islands predator-free by reporting signs of reinva- sion to DOC on 0800 DOC HOT A stop, check and go message to remind island visitors to check their boats and gear for predators before leaving the mainland. DOC is distributing copies of the brochure to accommodation provid- ers, libraries and tourist operators. Free copies are also available by emailing Helen Ough Dealy at DOC on hodealy@doc. govt.nz or by writing to her at PO Box 134, Rus- sell.
