Win a copy of The Story of the Hauraki Gulf, by Raewyn Peart!

The Story of the Hauraki Gulf encompasses the 1.4 million hectares of marine space that comprises the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. This includes over fifty islands, including Great Barrier and Great Mercury Islands, the entire east coast of Auckland, both coasts of the Coromandel Peninsula and the Firth of Thames.

The author visited numerous places within this vast and incredibly diverse area and interviewed over sixty people whose lives have intersected with the Hauraki Gulf in various ways — from local iwi leaders; to men and women making a living from the gulf; to those enjoying sailing, fishing and diving; and to environmentalists who work tirelessly to preserve and restore our precious natural heritage. These stories are woven into a narrative of discovery and settlement, transformation — both of land and sea — and scientific research and restoration. They are accompanied by over 300 images, historic and contemporary, and specially commissioned maps.
