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 new edition is completely revised and redesigned, with brand-new maps. Packed with useful information, and colourfully illustrated, Stewart Island is a guide and souvenir rolled into one. The book covers highlights, local flora and fauna, and something of the history of the island. There are numerous photographs of the stunning scenery and wildlife. Stewart Island is best known as a haven for native birds, such as the kiwi, the weka and, on adjacent Codfish Island, the endangered kakapo. Along with the birdlife, Neville Peat also describes a number of other species plants, insects, fish and lizards that are rare or unique to the island.
