Stewart Island

Last Updated: 24 September 2019

Stewart Island offers a special experience - an idea of a simpler, slower lifestyle, in the rhythm of the sea and tides, tuned to the natural world of the bush and the beach.

In 2002 the very qualities that make this a fantastic place to treasure were recognised in the formation of the Rakiura National Park, comprising 85% of the island's 1570 sq kilometres. Whether you've come and enjoy the land and the seascapes, view wildlife, hike, boat, fish, dive, kayak, hunt or simply unwind, a Stewart Island holiday will be an experience which will draw you back here over and over again.

Transportation options to Stewart Island are by ferry or flight. Ferries depart from Bluff and Fixed Wing airplane depart from Invercargill Airport. The ferry ride takes about one hour, the flights take about 15-20 minutes. With daily direct flights into Invercargill from Wellington and Christchurch, and connecting flights from Auckland, getting to Stewart Island couldn't be easier.

If you prefer road travel, why not settle-back and let someone else drive. There are daily bus services to Invercargill from Dunedin, Te Anau, Queenstown and Christchurch and much more locations in between!.
