Day 8: Great Barrier

You have a full day to explore this fantastic playground. Check-out the fishing charters from Tryphena Harbour or take a scenic cruise from Port Fitzroy. Other options are taking a soak in the Kaitoke Natural Hot Springs or tackling a part of the Aotea Track (ideal for nature-lovers and bird-watchers).

One way or another - ensure you maximise your last day on Aotea!

Local Tips

  • Why not head out to Medlands Beach - a fabulous surf beach on the East side of Great Barrier Island.
  • For the best views on the island, climb to the top of Mt Hobson (627m/2,057ft). Located in the centre of the Island, there are many tracks to take, with the shortest track leading through the famous Windy Canyon.
  • Take an easy walk along the Kaitoke Hot Springs Track, and enjoy a free soak in the sulphurous hot springs.
