Growing up in Paradise – Rarotonga

New Zealand
Jared Buckley

It is small, isolated and slightly rundown but growing up on the small Cook Island of Rarotonga provides its kids a world of opportunities.
A simple drive into town becomes an exciting ride. Kids are often transported on the back of ute's and scooters.
The ocean is the main playground, never more than short walk away. Here a young local girl tries her luck at rock fishing.
There are no swimming pools on the island. The wharf is where all local kids learn to swim, dive and perfect their bombs!
Even young children try to escape from home to explore the many wonders Rarotonga has on offer for its kids.
