|Birds found at Cape Kidnappers|
|The best time for viewing the gannets is between early November and late February. Nesting commences in mid-September and continues through to mid-December. The first chicks hatch in the first week of November and the last chicks depart the colony during May for their migration to Australia.
Access to the gannet colonies is closed between July and October. This is to prevent disturbance to the birds during their early nesting phase.
