Companion - new for 2017!

Otamahua / Quail Island's complex human history, especially that of the leper colony and the Antarctic expeditions, give the island international significance.

One of our trustees, Lindsay Daniel, has spent the last three years researching deeper into the history of Otamahua, and has written a 160 page document to be read in conjunction with Peter Jackson’s history book. It is focused on the leper colony, the patients, and those who cared for them, and also reveals new information about other aspects of the human history of the island, such as the rumour of gold, the first importation of red deer, the military history, David Halliwell’s farming lease, and much more.
