Apr 19, 2007 - Tutapere to Stewart Island

This morning we got the chance to visit a farm and sheer a sheep along with an all inclusive breakfast. This option with a free cooked breakfast for $10 was to good to turn down so most off us got up and went off to the farm to feed the sheep, watch the sheep dogs and try our hand at sheep shearing. We then got on the bus and headed off to Bluff (home of the famous Oysters) and caught the ferry to Stewart Island. When we had checked in a couple of us decided on going for a walk and most of the others joined us and we headed off to the...

The lady at our hostel said that there was little blue pengins that come across the path at the end of the bluff when the lighthouse flashes twice. We saw a couple of sea lions come up down on...

Oct 26, 2004 - An eight day trip on the NW Circuit Track of Stewart Island

After Doubtful Sound and parting ways with Chris and Alex (who'd I'd spent most of the last week+ with, but they were onto other adventures I'd get to later), and having scheduled a number of the classic tracks for the latter part of my time here (to allow more snow to melt off, and thus be able to even go on the tracks), I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do next. So, I just headed southeast, and within a few hours found myself asking a gas station attendant when the last ferry to Stewart Island was. I had wanted to go there since...
