Blumine Island

Blumine Island
Blumine Island, or Oruawairua in the Māori language, is in the Marlborough Sounds in the South Island of New Zealand. Blumine Island is approx 400 hectares (990 acres) and is mostly hill country. It is the site of a scenic reserve meaning anyone can visit the island. A visit by Captain James Cook left the island infested with introduced pests which have since been eradicated through the use of helicopter poison drops, conducted by the Department of Conservation. Blumine island hosts Outward Bound and Untouched World Charitable Trust who help in the maintenance of the island. Coordinates: 41°10′29″S 174°14′22″E / 41.1748°S 174.2395°E / -41.1748; 174.2395
