Other than jetties administered by the Department of Conservation, there are two jetties on the island which are owned by the Rodney District Council. One of these is situated at Schoolhouse Bay, the other at South Cove. All the other jetties on Kawau are privately owned, and the general public may not necessarily be permitted to use a particular jetty. Permission should be sought from the owner of the jetty to clarify the position before use.
Water tanks/water supply
There is no community based water supply on Kawau Island, the resident relying on water collected from roofs, and in some cases from bores. Visitors should not avail themselves of the use of this water without the permission of the owners.
The number of fenced properties on the island is increasing. In most cases these fences are for protection of gardens etc from the ravages of wallabies, and where gates are utilised, care should be taken to close firmly after use.
Walking tracks close or through properties
There are a number of walking tracks on the island which are utilised by locals in the absence of a roading network. These tracks are all on privately owned land and permission should be sought from the various landowners before use. Use of motor cycles and bicycles are usually prohibited.
