More than 85% of the area is protected and has only a small number of people - mostly fishermen - who mainly lives around the Oban Town Hall (which is the only bar on the island and definitely deserving of a visit). Much of the island is a protected area for birds with all imported carnivores (mainly rat and cat), so the birds are astonishing and much like in New Zealand before man's colonisation.
Lodging can be a problem on the island, so make sure you clear something up with your chauffeur before you leave. Bluff's'Real Journey's' is recommended and has a specific stray passenger pass. When you also choose the Milford Sound, Royal Journeys from a dedicated combination package where you take the Stewart Island boat and Milford Sound Cruise for a unique Stray Scenery!
Please note: You can travel to Stewart Island for one overnight stay without interrupting your trip with Stray.
