Great Barrier Aerodrome (IATA: GBZ, ICAO: NZGB) is the major airfield of the three on Great Barrier Island. It is a small, uncontrolled aerodrome 1 nautical mile (1.9 km) north-east of Claris on Great Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf off the North Island of New Zealand. Fuel is not available.

The town of Claris is a short walk to the north east, and there are rental car and bicycle hire services available at the airport. Landing fees were previously payable at Council offices, but are now billed direct to aircraft operators.
