Stewart Island - REDUCED
Insulated from the world by its remoteness, Stewart Island is a haven of tranquility and adventure. The pristine deep blue waters that surround Stewart Island are a marine paradise, attracting divers seeking seafood treasures, such as pāua and crayfish. ‘Rakiura’ is the Māori name for Stewart Island. It translates as ‘the Land of Glowing Skies’, probably referring to the night-time displays of Aurora Australis, the Southern Lights.
