Things To Do

Stewart Island Experience and Real Journeys


Stewart Island has been dubbed New Zealand’s ultimate eco-tourism destination.  Home to lush forest, rocky coastline and golden sand beaches, it is a natural refuge for marine and bird life.  Discover the unspoilt magic of our Southern-most island - Stewart Island. Far off the beaten track, yet only an hour away from the mainland by ferry.

It's the perfect place to relax and unwind for a day excursion or an extended stay.
Experience a Village & Bays Tour to gain an insight into local life, learn about the history of Stewart Island and the highlight, a visit Observation Rock for panoramic views of Paterson Inlet and off-shore islands.  Alternatively explore the island independently with our rental cars, mountain bikes and scooters.
