Browns island - Hauraki Gulf

I have wanted to get to this volcanic Island for a long time having sailed past it many times on my way to and from other Islands in the Gulf particularly Motuihe Island. Today was my chance with a group of 30 organised by Margi with brother  Harry Keys who is a DOC volcanologist that led our walk in January at Tongariro.
