Great Barrier Island, New Zealand
90 km NE from Auckland, about 3 hrs by boat and 30 minutes by airplane Great Barrier Island (Aotea) is a "world of its own".

The last Kauri dam left was damaged by a wind in June 2014, causing major road and road damages at the north end of the island.
There are a wide range of trails to discover, from a brief stroll to a cascade or a few warm water sources to a longer stroll to the highest point of the island. See the regenerative forests of indigenous forests and savour the untouched nature with panorama overlooks. Brunette deer, mallard, North Island caca, ribboned railing, NZ yolk and Chevronskink are just some of the threatened wildlife that this area offers.
Lifestyles here are usually slow and things don't always go on schedule, but in'barrier time'. The name Aotea is Maori for the island.
