Visit Stewart Island
Stewart Island, New Zealand's often-overlooked third island lies 30 kilometres from Bluff across the Foveaux Strait.
With only 15 kilometres of roads and 85% of the island uninhabited and protected, it's a mecca for walkers and bird watchers. More than 30 bird species call the island home, including the weka, the critically endangered kakapo and most famously the Stewart Island kiwi, which unlike its mainland cousin is active during daylight hours.
Nearby Ulva Island is another of the best places to spot kiwi.
