Welcome to Our Blog

It’s pretty simple on the island – figuratively, and literally speaking!
Amazing people, experienced and eclectic in their mix. Who loves a good yarn, give you a wave every time you pass on narrow roads that add an element of excitement to every day.
Amenities… forget the convenience of your local metropolitan area – this is a plan in advance world. Aotea is off the grid – and wildly proud of it! Every residence is (leagues ahead of city dwelling grid power – it’s amazing what necessity will force people to get used to), equipped with solar panels, and a line of batteries, just in case.
Despite this off the grid status, it’s amazing what you will actually find, especially during the Summer season. Gourmet burgers, milkshake bars, fishing and tackle – of course, fishing charters, fine dining, bars, off-licences, tours, one of the most beautiful night skies the world over, the single most important (we think so anyway), as there’s no public transport at all, so we provide an invaluable service for the Island, and it’s visitors – Rental cars!!!! And a shuttle service… until you’re familiar with it, Great Barrier can be a little hard to get around.
Very soon you’ll feel at home, the locals will yarn, the friendly ‘driving waves’ will happen, the long stretches of beaches will speak to your soul, and you’ll be planning your next visit even before you leave! When you do dear reader, we look forward to meeting you at Great Barrier Wheels, cars, pickups, drop offs, relocation, meet and greets at the Claris airport or Tryphena wharf.
‘Just turn left out of the airport’… it’s a tagline to remember!! Because just 100m from the airport door your chariot awaits!
