Administration of Offshore Islands


The Minister of Local Government acts as the territorial authority for eight offshore islands that are not included in the boundaries of an established local authority. Only three have any significant population and / or permanent buildings and structures.
  • Mayor (Tuhua) Island - a small, infrequently active volcanic island situated off the Bay of Plenty coast. The island is controlled by the Tuhua Trust Board, which maintains and hires out several buildings and cabins. The island is closed to the public until these buildings and facilities are made safe.
  • Motiti Island - a small settled island with a permanent population mostly engaged in farming.
  • White Island - a small island off the Bay of Plenty coast, New Zealand's most active volcano and a scenic reserve.
