Stewart Island is an increasingly popular holiday destination for eco-tourism and outdoor recreation, with many bush walks and a wealth of natural features to enjoy. Neville Peat introduces the attractions of the island – what to see and do, its walks and tramps, its national park, wildlife, history and magnificent scenery. This is a revised and updated 2019 edition.
Neville Peat has been visiting Stewart Island for recreation and research for more than 40 years. He is the author of two other books about the island: Stewart Island: The last refuge (1991) and Rakiura Heritage (2010). This book was originally published as Stewart Island: A Rakiura ramble in 2000. In 2007 Neville was awarded New Zealand’s largest literary prize, the Creative New Zealand Michael King Writer’s Fellowship, for a book about the Tasman Sea, which includes Foveaux Strait. He lives on the Otago Peninsula, Dunedin. www.nevillepeatsnewzealand.com
