Nomad’s Guide to South Island, New Zealand

Connect with the wildlife in Stewart Island

Stewart Island is a renowned National park & Wildlife preservation centre, providing home to a large population of NZ’s Kiwis. Luckily for the endangered Kiwis, most parts of the island are not accessible and the chances of seeing them in the wild are quite rare. Besides that you will get to see a variety or birds like the kakapo, different kinds of Albatrosses, penguins, petrels, the weka and you could even see some very rare species on the island. Not far from here is the Ulva Island, although accessible only through tours, is recommendable for a short trip.

  1. A place I have yet to make it to. I so look forward to going to one day though, especially for views like that! (:

  2. I’m a New Zealander and I don’t think there is a more magical place on earth!

    Manan you have really stoked my fire again – that might sound rashly inappropriate but you know what I mean 😛
    lovely pictures too…

  5. I was so close (when in Australia)… but never made it here. Maybe one day. Thanks for linking up to #SundayTraveler again.

  6. This country is just very beautiful ! Its the best place I have been to until now in my life
    It is just heaven on earth! 🙂 🙂

  7. New Zealand is just so amazing. I feel like I would need a whole year to explore the country properly.

    • NZ certainly is magnificent Adelina! I met many people in New Zealand who were living there for over a year on a working holiday visa, working for 3-4 days of the week and travelling for the rest. Seemed like the best way to see New Zealand for a prolonged time and on an economical budget.

  8. New Zealand is always been my fascination….I will definitely visit there to the land of wonders..
