Australasia & South Pacific, Image of the Month

Image of the month

Great Barrier IslandThis serene image was captured by Alex Braithwaite early one morning on New Zealand’s beautiful Great Barrier Island. On the outskirts of the Hauraki Gulf, it is the fourth largest of New Zealand’s main chain of islands yet has a population of around 900, leading visitors to delight in the unspoilt coastal landscapes and compare the island’s atmosphere to life in New Zealand ‘decades ago’.  The eastern coast is made up of long, clear beaches, windswept sand-dunes, and heavy surf. The western coast, sheltered and calm, is home to many small, secluded bays which offer some of New Zealand’s best diving and sailing. Inland you’ll find large and biologically diverse wetlands along with rugged hill country and both old-growth and regenerating kauri forests.
