Visitors to Great Barrier Island can expect long sandy beaches, windswept dunes and secluded bays which offer some of the best diving and fishing in the country.
Inland there are several large and biologically diverse wetlands as well as second and old growth kauri forests.
Almost 60% of the island is nature reserve managed by The NZ Department of Conservation which provides well maintained walking tracks and camp grounds.
