Go on an informative and interactive guided walk that takes you on a journey of discovery through Stewart Island’s unique cultural and natural heritage.

Our small group guided walks to Ackers Point provides an unforgettable insight into the diversity and beauty of this island sanctuary. The walk may also include a visit to Ackers Point lighthouse and New Zealand’s oldest building, Ackers Cottage. This is a great spot for watching little blue penguins returning ashore to their nesting sites.

On occasions the route may vary and our alternative walk visits Lee Bay to learn about Stewart Island's historic sawmilling and modern-day paua and oyster industries. With this route your guided walk takes you through tall native forest and along the beautiful coastline to Little River. This charming estuary is the perfect place to enjoy the tranquillity of Stewart Island.

Throughout your walk, our local nature guide will enlighten you about Stewart Island’s history, its fascinating environment and point out the native plant and bird life. You will also gain a first-hand understanding of the conservation efforts of the local residents.
