Stewart Island or Rakiura in Maori, usually translated as Glowing Skies, is the third-largest island of New Zealand. Its permanent population is slightly over 400 people, most of whom live in the settlement of Oban. There is a general store, postal agency, DOC Visitor Centre, restaurant, cafes and various accommodation options. From here there are a number of tracks suitable for day walks.

Stewart Island is a beautiful, unspoilt wilderness that is home to New Zealand’s most southerly national park, Rakiura National Park, which comprises 85% of the island. There are a variety of outdoor activities available including hunting, diving, fishing, walking, tramping, mountain biking, bird watching, kayaking and scenic flights. Stewart Island is a haven for native bird life and the only place in New Zealand where you can readily see kiwi in their natural habitat.


With more than 1.4 million residents ‘super city’ Auckland is New Zealand’s most cosmopolitan and now most populous city. It boasts every kind of entertainment and attraction a visitor could wish for, many unique, all affordable and most within easy access.

Often call the ‘City of Sails’, Auckland is beautifully positioned on an isthmus between two of the finest harbours anywhere in the world, the Manukau and the Waitemata. That’s why we invite you to cruise in style and explore what makes Auckland truly unique. Join us on the Waitemata Harbour which leads out into the Hauraki Gulf.

We can visit Waiheke or Great Barrier Island where a thousand experiences await, from pristine beaches through to sampling local taste treats with a drop of local vino. There are no less than 144 islands across the Bay with marine life of all kinds in abundance. You can fish, observe and enjoy our commentary on everything you encounter. We can also venture further to the Bay of Islands where there are sandy, white beaches, rocky peninsulas and an abundance of wildlife.

Charter the Great Southern for your perfect accommodation in Auckland and take the opportunity to cruise around the beautiful Auckland area. Berthed at the Viaduct in central Auckland you will be moored right in the heart of the vibrant environment.
