A feature of the island are a number of remaining kauri dams. These dams were used to flood rivers, floating kauri logs downstream. 

Great Barrier Island is well-supplied with tracks, campsites, and two tramping huts. Many of the tracks and facilities were damaged in a severe 2014 storm.

A highlight is the 2-3 day Aotea Track.
