Waiheke Island Time-lapse
by Chris van der Leer on November 1st, 2016

​Waiheke Island is in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand and is the third most populous island of New Zealand (after the North and South Islands), with 8000 permanent residents, 2000 of whom commute to Auckland each work day. In summer the population swells dramatically, as the island is a popular destination for both overseas travellers and New Zealanders.

In November 2015, Waiheke Island received international attention when it was rated the fifth best destination in the world to visit in 2016 by Lonely Planet.

​The microclimate is well suited for winemaking and the island has over two dozen vineyards. Olives are well established and some extremely nice olive oils are produced. Waiheke is administered by the Auckland Council.

This video is the product of a few hours spent on the island in October 2016 - Overall, its not a bad effort for only being on the island for around 8 hours in total.
