Southern most island of New Zealand. Stewart Island is haven for native birds & only place in New Zealand where you can (most of the time) kiwi birds in natural their habitat. Maori name for island is Rakiura. Remote & big for an island, we saw blue penguins,petrels,cormorants, tui, albatross & KIWIS @ night! Great walking/hiking around island w/ 420 miles of coastline, but there are only 12 miles of roads! Cool but comfortable, found a wonderful crafts store - "The Fernery" bought great…
