This place looks incredible! do people live on this volcanic island? are they abandoned houses that you broke into? ahhhh so many questions
hello ruby xx nobody lives on the island anymore, i don't think anyone even holidays there now. it's such a shame! all those beautiful baches are all boarded up so that you can't even look in the windows, except for one that has been restored by the Rangitoto Trust (i took a photo through it's window.) from what i could gather there used to be about 150 people who would regularly summer on the island in the 20's and 30's - and there were many more baches that have been torn down now. there used to be big parties, and a public pool and a tearooms and a campground...but now the place is pretty much deserted. it has this amazing feeling of being sort of stuck in time...
Love these! I haven't been to rangitoto in years, but I remember that exact feeling x
