Stewart Island – The Rakiura walk

End of 2016 trip to Stewart Island

Flight to Invercargill and ferry to Oban gave us a few hours to have a quick walk into Invercargill.


Burt Munroe’s Indian Scout in Invercargill


Oban village by Ferry wharf


A Typical bay on the way to the start of the Rakiura walk


Symbolic link to the mainland at Lee Bay.  There is another of these in Bluff.  This is the start of the official walk, the entry to the national park.


Typical scenery from the first day of the walk – to Port William.


Maori Beach.  There was a thriving settlement here at one stage.


Dawn at Port William


Someone wandering along the track to Bungaree at 6 am.


It came up and sniffed at my feet before running off as I startled it.

back to “civilisation” at Golden Bay, Oban.

One thought on “Stewart Island – The Rakiura walk”

  1. Sounds like a great trip. What wonderful photos of a kiwi! You were really lucky. I saw a kiwi on that track years ago but when i went to take a photo it scuttled away.
