Information about Stewart Island (Rakiura)

Stewart Island, and its sprawling national park Rakiura, is New Zealand’s beautiful and wild third island, located off the south coast of the South Island.

Rakiura Stewart Island is densely forested, with rolling hills, untouched sandy coastlines, and rocky outcrops. Its peaceful remoteness and conservation efforts have made it into a natural refuge for marine and birdlife, as well as a wonderful destination for those who value nature and wild places.

Explore the Island and its surrounding islands and landscapes with a range of inter-island experiences. Cruise over to Ulva Island, the natural birdlife sanctuary and listen to the song of rare native birds. Explore the main island on a Village and Bays Tour with a local guide and their stories of the region. Head out to ‘the neck’, Oneke, a remote part of the main island and take a guided walk through the native wilderness and learn about the culture’s stories.
