|Welcome to AOTEA (Great Barrier Island).
Escape to a magical holiday on Great Barrier Island, New Zealand, just 30 minutes flying time from Auckland or 4 – 5 hours on the car ferry.
Our four accommodation units are set in park like grounds, in quiet surroundings frequented by bird life including banded rail, kaka, kereru, tui, many finches and fantails. Each unit is self contained with its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom. The Lodge is within easy walking distance to beaches, shops, restaurants, cafes, the Currach Irish Pub, Tipi and Bobs Waterfront Lodge and the Great Barrier Social Club,
Great Barrier Island has all that you would expect from an island holiday destination and more – rugged, untamed landscapes, white sandy beaches, native forest, and rare plant and animal life. By arrangement the shuttle service or tour vehicles will collect you and deliver you to other parts of the island or we can arrange a rental car for you.
Need advice on getting to and from the island, how to get around and what to see and do?
