Final Peek at Stewart Island

Oban is the main town on Stewart Island. Actually, it’s the only town on the island. My characters in Protecting the Bride, Cullen and Grace, stayed here and spent time exploring the town and the rest of the island. This is a view of Oban.

We took a boat trip inland during our time on Stewart Island to the start of a popular walking track. The trip into the hut depends on the tide since the water is very shallow at low tide. The scenery, however, is stunning, with lots of pristine native bush.

It was lovely seeing the scenery farther inland, and if I ever get a chance to return, I’d love to attempt some of the longer walking tracks.

And finally, to prove that kiwis live on Stewart Island, they have signs stating this fact.

Kiwis live here!

Yes, it’s true. Kiwis live here!

  1. Sure looks nice there. I haven’t been on a boat since I was a kid.
