You’re invited to Outdoor AdventurHers Stewart Island!
This Discovery is an opportunity for Rangers from all across Aotearoa to spend four amazing days on the beautiful Stewart Island. Stewart Island is renowned for its vast beaches, beautiful bush walks and fascinating history. During your stay you will be taking a water taxi over to Ulva Island for a two hour exploration walk. Ulva Island is one of the few pest-free open sanctuaries in New Zealand. You will also be kiwi hunting each night, doing the Twinkle Dark Sky Tour, hiking and participating in adventure based learning and water activities. There will also be the opportunity to just relax and enjoy one of the local beaches. You will need to be fairly fit and capable of walking for at least half a day.
On the 7th October, the group will be staying at the Lindisfarne Community Centre (22 Lindisfarne Street, Georgetown, Invercargill) for the night. If you are going to be flying into Invercargill, we will have a leader at the airport for the day and will arrange shuttle transfers between the airport and the Community Centre. If you are travelling by car, please arrive at the Community Centre between 4 – 5pm. Dinner will be provided this night so no need to eat before arriving. You will be travelling to Stewart Island early on the morning of October 8.
On the 12th October, the ferry will bring the group back over from Stewart Island in the morning where a bus will collect everyone and take them to Invercargill Airport. If you are travelling home by car, then pickup will be from 11am at the airport. Flights will need to be booked for 12th October, we will have adults waiting at the airport with girls until their flight departure times. If you absolutely can’t get a flight on the 12th October please let us know so we can look at alternative arrangements.
Please do not book any flights without first confirming the details with us. Please email [email protected] to discuss the best flight option times available to you to ensure they fit in with our schedules.
