Stewart Island, New Zealand overview

Stewart Island, the southern-most island of New Zealand, shows as a dot on the map (if it appears at all). Don't be fooled. Few people can claim to have seen anywhere near the whole of Stewart Island. However, there is much to see, even close to the only settlement of Oban. For a day-trip or stay longer, as there is a good range of accommodation. Some visitors from twenty years ago are still living there.

Our first visit to Stewart Island . Enjoyed a walk across to the main township . We did have a little " excitement " following our departure , for around 1800 hrs , whilst we were finishing dining , the ship " blacked out " totally , no power at all , about 5 mile or so from the island . The Captain kept the 386 passengers advised at all times , even with the information tugs were on standby from Port Chalmers , however , by 2300 hrs , power was restored & the Silver Shadow continued to proceed to Port Chalmers at speed to make up for time lost .
