I'm still working on this section. There are now nine pages. The first three of these are not strictly speaking about Stewart Island. But more about getting there from Dunedin.
The drive from Dunedin to Bluff - the ferry port for Stewart Island
Our brief sojourn in the fascinating port town of Bluff that reminded me so much of Penzance/Newlyn in Cornwall in the UK.

Our trip to the beautiful bird sanctuary of Ulva Island (photos only so far)
Our walks out on Ackers Point through fascinating bush in search of the Sooty Shearwaters and Blue Penguins (merging this and the page below)

There are some other pages that touch on Stewart Island - see
