kiwis on stewart island

Stewart Island

Accommodation is based on share twin. That's two singles or one double sharing a room. If you are single and want to stay that way we can arrange single rooms.

BushIn Invercargill we stay at the Victoria Railway Hotel a restored historic guesthouse in the centre of Invercargill.

At Mason Bay we stay in a campsite alongside the public hut. Bunk beds are generally available in the hut and our camp is well set up with a range of tents, camping chairs and inflatable mattresses. We provide sleeping bags. No power, toilets are outside and there are no showers .... sorry that's the price you pay to see a kiwi in the wild and all of our customers agree it is worth it!
In Halfmoon Bay we stay at a holiday hone or "crib" with all the mod cons....power, showers and flush toilets. Linen is provided. Carry only your own personal items.
