Perched on the outer edge of the Hauraki Gulf 'The Barrier' is a naturally beautiful island that begs to be explored. On Great Barrier Island you'll discover some of New Zealand's most pristine beaches and native bush. Its grandeur encourages outdoor activity and more than 100 kms of walking tracks, great surf beaches, hiking, diving, fishing, kayaking and mountain biking opportunities ensure you can easily make your own adventure. Take your own surfboard, mountain bike or kayak, or hire equipment on the island. After a day's activity, watch the sun go down over the sea and reflect on why you came: to escape the pressures of a busy life - perfect!
