4 Nights: Thursday 25 November - Monday 29 November 2021
Escape to a stunning unspoiled island, a world away but just thirty minutes scenic flight from Auckland. Aotea Great Barrier has stunning coastline, rugged mountain ranges, lush native bush and welcoming locals.
A special element of your visit will be a full day garden tour as part of the annual Great Barrier Garden Tour event. On an unforgettable day out you will visit six gardens chosen to reflect the different facets of life on the island. Our group will also attend a special community dinner which is a charity fundraiser for the local community health trust. This will be a special chance to enjoy good food in the company of the friendly Barrier locals, while supporting a good cause.
Great Barrier island has a rich history from ancestral Polynesian inhabitants to early European settlers attracted by abundant natural resources of kauri, copper, silver and gold and whaling which has resulted in several economic booms and busts. Learn more of this history as you explore the island with local guides.
