Hauraki Gulf

The Hauraki Gulf Islands are among some of the most beautiful in the world with their rare bird sanctuaries, unspoiled stands of native trees and plants, and breathtaking views over the Pacific Ocean.

Described as “jewels” in New Zealand’s Conservation Crown, many of the smaller islands are a reflection of the high premium which Kiwis place on keeping their natural environment “clean and green”.
