Stewart Island Lodge

Getting to the Lodge

Located at the southern tip of New Zealand, Stewart Island is readily accessible by ferry from Bluff (1 hour) and small plane from Invercargill (20 minutes).  Both options have several departures daily.

Getting to Bluff is easy as coach transfers from Invercargill connect with the Stewart Island Ferry all year (pick-ups from Invercargill Airport, Tuatara Backpackers Lodge, Victoria Railway Hotel and i-SITE Visitor Centre).

Coach connections are also available from Queenstown and Te Anau, November to April.

On arrival at Stewart Island, please check in at the Oban Visitor Centre (located immediately adjacent to the ferry terminal). We will then transfer you to the Lodge.

If you arrive by air, please let us know so that we can pick you up from the airport on Stewart Island.
