"A place where native plants an birds can live safely and the public can enjoy them"
No trip to Stewart Island is complete without a visit to Ulva Island. As the southern-most open bird sanctuary , the Ulva experience is inimitable.
Enjoy the splendour of nature amidst the otherworldly native forest of towering rimu and totara standing among lush fernery. Because the island is completely predator free, the bird population has flourished.
Visitors to the island are greeted by the ethereal birdsong of tui and bellbirds and shortly encounter the inquisitive weka, fantails and unique Stewart Island robins. The island also boasts numerous seabirds, oystercatchers, kaka, kakariki, woodpigeon and a few kiwi.
Ulva Island is one of the remarkable gems that make a trip to Stewart Island exceptional.
