Shipwreck graves

We spent several days hiking and touring Great Barrier Island with our good friends. An easy hike to Whangapoua Beach’s north end by Waikaro Point brought us to one of the two anonymous mass graves for the wreck of the S.S. Wairarapa in 1894. What a beautiful area for a final rest.
