Great Barrier Island

Great Barrier Island (Aotea) represents New Zealand the way it used to be - a sparsely populated and rugged landscape. It is the remoteness, seclusion and natural beauty which attract people to Great Barrier - to live and to visit. Although part of Auckland City, Great Barrier Island is 90km away to the northeast, in the outer Hauraki Gulf. It has a permanent population of around 1200 people which is known to skyrocket to between 12,000 - 15,000 during the peak summer period. Great Barrier Island is accessible by sea or air.
