Looking for an overseas holiday with a gentle relaxed feel?
Stewart Island is the perfect place. The stars are the wildlife and a glimpse of Aoteroa New Zealand before human habitation. A place where the flora and fauna speak to visitors about a holiday where the fun and entertainment generate from the sheer exhiliteration of interacting with nature.
New Zealand’s third largest island is not easy to access. Often the weather is cool in summer with strong winds more reminiscent of autumn. The Foveaux Strait, the body of water between Stewart Island and the South Island has a reputation for southern ocean swells making the boat trip uncomfortable. At latitude 47 degrees south Stewart Island is situated right in the “Roaring Forties” – strong westerly winds found in the Southern Hemisphere between the latitudes of 40 and 50 degrees.
