Rocky Bay Dip, Great Mercury Island

Great Mercury Island is a small island between the end of Coromandel and Tauranga.  It is not far from Whitianga and for the kids it was the first time they had been there.  After walking over to this secluded bay they enjoyed nature at it's best with swimming, collecting and relaxing.
There were so many different types of stones, it was hard to not pick them up!

Island Trekking, Great Mercury Island

On our summer holiday cruise we went ashore at Great Mercury Island.  This is a beautiful island with walks all over it to many of the bays and huge rock formations. 
The kids had great fun exploring amongst the farm animals and beaches!  Trekking over it we found cattle stops, an abundance of sheep and cows and even a small patch of flowers!
