Waimārama and Bare Island (Motu-o-Kura)

In the 2000s Waimārama was a combination of farmed land, permanent dwellings and baches (holiday homes). Bare Island has not changed much since Captain James Cook described it as ‘a pretty high white island lying close to the shore’ in 1769, though it is devoid of the buildings that were present when he sailed past (http://southseas.nla.gov.au/journals/cook/17691016.html).
