Great Barrier Island

Great Barrier Island is a large island of New Zealand, situated 88 km to the north-east of central Auckland in the outer Hauraki Gulf. One of the largest islands in New Zealand, it is named so as it acts as a barrier between the Pacific Ocean and the mainland. In the Maori language, it is called Aotea, meaning white cloud. Its official name is Great Barrier Island (Motu Aotea). The remote island, initially exploited for its kauri trees, is now inhabited by a small population of around 900 people.
