Leave the rat race behind and come and visit Great Barrier Island.
Great Barrier Island is a beautiful escape from the mainland, so jump on a ferry or bring your own boat and stay for a few days.
We're 90km from Auckland, 3 hours by ferry (look out for dolphins along the way) or just 30 minutes by plane.
Enjoy the beaches, the walking trails, the mountain biking, the bush walks or relax in the hot springs. Hire a boat or take a cruise. Try abseiling or horse treking or visit a gallery or a museum. There really is something for everyone here.
You may bring your well trained dog to the island (just check with your accommodation provider first that they're dog friendly) but dogs are not permitted on any of the DoC walking tracks or are on the beaches. The ground nesting New Zealand dotterel and variable oyster catcher are very vulnerable to disturbance and need all the help they can get for successful breeding seasons.
