Sensory immersion in nature in Great Barrier Island

Experiences can be tailored to individual needs.

For shorter weekend stays, it's a good idea to take a flight from Auckland with Barrier Air and hire a car on the island. By Sealink ferry, the crossing from Auckland is a relaxing 4 and a half hours, docking at Tryphena wharf 7 days a week in the summer and 3 days in the winter. The ferry is able to transport passengers', freight and vehicles.

It is a time to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us, to feast and celebrate with our relatives and friends, and to look towards the future and the hope of a season full of bounty.
