Ray White Great Barrier Island
With its rugged landscape, untouched wilderness and stunning coastline, Great Barrier Island in New Zealand’s Hauraki Gulf is truly a world of its own.
The east coast of the island is known for its white sand beaches and world famous surf breaks, while the west features secluded bays home to some of New Zealand’s best diving and fishing spots in New Zealand. In between lies a diverse landscape – from rugged hill country to wetlands to kauri forests – marked by gravel roads and homes of the island’s 900 residents.
With communities across the island, including Tryphena, Medlands, Okupu, Whangaparapara, Port Fitzroy, Claris and Kaitoke – visiting is like taking a wonderful step back in time, with no traffic lights, very few shops and only the sound of native birdsong.
It’s this seclusion and breathtaking scenery that make it an attractive destination for tourists, holidaymakers and those seeking a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city – which is a mere two hours’ away by ferry, or 30 minutes by plane.
