Remote from today's busy world and relatively hard of access and undisturbed by man, Stewart Island is truly one of New Zealand's great escapes. With an abundance of wildlife, thick bush brimming with native birds, including the infamous Kiwi, Stewart Island is a nature lovers paradise.
Stewart Island is often described as having all four seasons in one day,(and locals are thinking of starting out on a fifth) which gives some wonderful effects of light and changing moods on the land and sea scape. And don't worry, without rain, there wouldn't be rain-forest.
The best way to reach Stewart Island is by plane, just a twenty minute scenic flight from Invercargill to this tranquil place where time almost stands still.
Return air fares from Christchurch to Invercargill and on to Stewart Island are included in all Boutique Escapes - however if you wish to fly from any other New Zealand destination please contact us for details.
