Stewart Island offers the best chance most people will ever have to see the Kiwi in its natural environment. Rest assured not many New Zealanders can make that claim. Many centuries ago Maori came by canoe to the island to harvest shellfish and mutton birds, traditions still carried out today by local ’iwi’. They named the island Rakiura - ’Land of the Glowing Skies’ as it is renowned for its lingering sunsets of summer and the aurora of winter.
