Stewart Island is seperated from the South Island by the Foveaux Strait and is approximately 30 kilometres distance between the two.
It is New Zealand's 3rd largest island.
Sparsely populated and rugged, it offers locals and visitors a slower pace of life. The majority of the island is made up of the Rakiura National Park.
Small pockets of housing dot the island but on the whole it is an area to fish, swim, walk, dive and so much more. So many outdoor activities can be achieved on this tiny island. The locals are so friendly and more than happy to share their local knowledge with travellers.
