Stewart Island & The South East Coast

Stewart Island & The South East Coast Holidays


This idyllic and lesser traversed corner of New Zealand boasts an abundance of wildlife experiences and beautiful scenery. Explore the harbour city of Dunedin with its Scottish heritage and spot waddling penguins on a cruise around the neighbouring Otago Peninsula, or up the coast in historic Oamaru.

Get truly off the beaten track in Catlins Forest Park; see Nugget Point Lighthouse, tumbling waterfalls and rugged undulating coastline, dotted with vast deserted beaches. Offshore, rural Stewart Island is the country’s southernmost point, a haven for hikers and offers the best chance of spotting kiwis roaming free.
