Stewart Island offers a unique experience attuned to the natural world of bush and beach. Home to Rakiura National Park, which comprises 85% of the island, it provides a rare opportunity to explore the untouched beauty of New Zealand’s most southernmost point. The island is a haven for brown kiwi, which outnumber humans on the island, and are active day and night. With its slow pace and spectacular landscapes, incredible walks and a haven for bird watchers, Stewart Island is one of New Zealand’s largely undiscovered eco-tourism destinations.

What you'll love
WILD KIWI ENCOUNTER
Depart Oban on the Foveaux Express from Halfmoon Bay at dusk and cruise across Paterson Inlet to Little Glory Cove. Cruise past historic settlement sites on The Neck and learn about Stewart Island’s rich history and nature along the way. Once there, take a short guided bush walk by torchlight through spectacular coastal forest to a secluded sandy beach where Kiwi are often found searching for food after nightfall. Here, in the darkness, you’ll get up close to the Southern Brown Kiwi in its unspoilt natural habitat. The native name for these amazing creatures is Rakiura Tokoeka (pronounced Rucky -oo-ruh Taw-kaw-eck-uh). They are the Stewart Island variety of Brown Kiwi and are found nowhere else. After searching for Kiwi, you will return to the vessel along forest track and cruise back to Oban Main Wharf.

STEWART ISLAND ULVA ISLAND EXPLORER TOUR
Discover hidden coves and unspoilt beaches with a leisurely cruise along the beautiful Paterson Inlet. Visit the renowned wildlife sanctuary on Ulva Island for a 45 minute guided walk. Keep a lookout for fur seals, penguins, native bird life, rare plants and abundant wildlife. 

VILLAGE AND BAYS TOUR
During this highlights tour our friendly guides will provide an insight into Stewart Island’s community, history and environment. Unspoiled, incredibly beautiful and steeped in stories of Maori legend, Stewart Island is well worth this informative introduction. There is plenty of time to get off the bus for photo stops and short walks along the way. Highlights include the Rakiura National Park entrance at Lee Bay, Halfmoon and Horseshoe Bays and views of Paterson Inlet from Observation Rock.

STEWART ISLAND LODGE
Stewart Island Lodge is a bed and breakfast situated just five minutes’ walk from the Oban village with an extensive deck and panoramic views over Halfmoon Bay and across Foveaux Strait. The lodge garden is home to many native birds, including kaka which may be viewed from the terrace. Guest rooms open directly onto an expansive balcony with ocean views.
