Exploring New Zealand: Great Barrier Island
By Marina Darling
Of all the places I’ve explored in New Zealand, my trip to Great Barrier Island is one adventure that I will treasure forever. Great Barrier is located off the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, roughly 90 kilometres from Auckland. Great Barrier has a wildness to it that you have to experience first hand. The roads are narrow and unsealed. There are no traffic lights and shops are few and far between. As far as resources go, most people rely on rainwater and solar-power. There are many places on the island that can only be reached by walking or by boat. The island is quiet and in some places, there’s no cell coverage. It’s the ideal place to go to escape.
