Visit Great Barrier Island, New Zealand

Just a 30-minute flight from Auckland and beautifully unspoiled, Great Barrier Island is a natural haven for wildlife and lovers of nature. The interior is laced with walking paths through magnificent forests, hot springs and historical kauri dams.

Waterfall in the Coromandel PeninsulaThe best paths are found in Great Barrier Forest where, after a couple of hours’ tramping, you can reach Hirakimata, the island’s highest point, with views across to the Coromandel and Auckland. On the coast, Great Barrier also has some of the North Island’s finest surf beaches, with crystal-clear diving offshore.

The sheer isolation of the island is an attractive factor and it is the ideal place for a tranquil retreat.
