Ulva's Guided Walks has exclusive rights to operate kiwi spotting tours at Mamaku Point Conservation Reserve which is located 4km from the Oban township. We meet after sunset for pre-tour briefing and make the short road journey to Mamaku Point Conservation Reserve, entering via a straightforward quarantine process. With our local guide explore the forest and favoured hang-outs of these rare iconic birds. Listen for Morepork and Blue Penguin & marvel at the stars above - Stewart Island's spectacular night sky is accredited Dark Sky Sanctuary status by the International Dark Sky Association. Terrain at the reserve may include muddy/wet tracks, uneven ground, gradients, native bush and sandy beach - good level of fitness & agility essential.
