Browns Island lies in the harbour just out from Ladies Bay. The island is a low volcanic hill of 60 hectares lying at the mouth of the Tamaki River. It was originally named Motukorea (island of the pied oystercatcher bird) by the Maoris. When it was originally purchased in 1840, a pg farm was established there. The island is now public domain and is popular for its swimming beaches on either side and sheltered conditions in all winds. There is limited accommodation and camping.
