Wandern Sie einen Abschnitt des Rakiura Great Walks im Rakiura Nationalpark auf dem Port William Coastal Track, eine der schönsten Wanderungen auf Stewart Island überhaupt. Mit dem Wassertaxi geht‘s zum ehemaligen Maori Dorf Port William. Von dort geht es genüsslich die Küste entlang und durch den Urwald zurück nach Oban. Halten Sie Ausschau nach Kiwis, Sturmtauchern, Seelöwen und Pinguinen.
