This delightful, quirky 40 minute film answers the myriad of questions visitors have about the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of Stewart Island, from the most reliable of all sources - the pub (or more accurately, from the yarns overheard at the pub by a local dog).

The film lets you browse through the island's history and gives you a tour of the whole island from the big screen comfort of the Bunkhouse Theatre, guided by a local dog - Lola.

If you want to know more, check out our trailer (video attached) and see a wee snippet of the film.

The films shows daily throughout the summer - 11am, 2pm & 4pm.
