Stewart Island

Yacht Charter in Stewart Island

Stewart Island is a large and extremely remote island that lies at the very bottom of New Zeland’s South Island. With 85 per cent of the island lying in a protect national park, the Rakiura National Park, it is home to some of the rarest fauna and flora on the planet – indeed some of the island’s plants are only found here. The unique land forms, particularly on the east coast, are almost ‘moonlike’ while on the west coast Mason Bay is home to one of New Zealand’s largest areas of sand dunes. The coastline is littered with stunning sandy beaches, inlets, bays and wonderful harbours. The only inhabited corner of Stewart Island is the town of Oban.
