Great Barrier Island Flights Guide
The height of Great Barrier Island provides an unbeatable view of the crystal blue ocean below. Tourists visit for this glorious view, and enjoy it with activities such as hiking, diving, surfing, mountain biking, camping, and surfing. Hirakimata (Mount Hobson) is the highest point, and attracts many of the hikers.
Tourists visit the Great Barrier Island to escape the hustle and bustle of city life - but New Zealand's largest city of Auckland can be reached by ferry, which can take two hours to four and a half hours, depending on the type of ferry you take.
The hotter months are January through March, with more rain in July and August. It is often overcast or partly cloudy. Avoid the heat and the rain by going during a 'happy medium' month - September through December should do the trick.
