Nestled among New Zealand’s Bay of Islands lies the secluded and almost inaccessible Hole in the Rock Island. Apart from its inaccessibility, the island’s intrigue is further added to by its unique physical form and appearance. Now, thanks to a newly installed heliport on the island, you can experience the views from its summit arriving by helicopter.
Be sure to take your camera with you and capture images not available to others. This is the ultimate ‘I was there’ moment, shared by very view people throughout history, including the local native Maori inhabitants. The island’s peak juts from the surrounding azure seas and is walled by steep-sided cliffs home only to seabirds and a hardy selection of indigenous plants. From the summit, facing Cape Brett, you will command unspoiled views of the stunning scenery and seascapes. This really a rare and opportunistic experience not to be missed.
