NZ ISLAND (3) : Stewart Island

Stewart Island/Rakiura is situated south of New Zealand's South Island. - next stop Antarctica. It's a stormy, gloomy, romantic place, and it rains 275 days a year! Unspoilt, relaxing and incredibly beautiful, a showcase for untouched natural New Zealand. .

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…
