Paterson Inlet's rainforest shoreline has beaches of fine sand and delicate shells. In a quiet, tranquil corner, the Norwegians set up a repair base for their harpoon boats during the 1920's, employing Stewart Islanders and Norwegians. This historic site has building foundations and relics of a bygone era.

Cruise from Golden Bay Wharf, look out for marine life and penguins to Millars Beach. An easy guided walk (20 minutes), through a regenerating forest of ferns and podocarp trees, brings us to the Norwegian Whalers' Base. Take time to explore, learn and walk along the beach.

More time not rushed on our 3hrs informative trip - personalised in small groups. Find us at the Ruggedy Range™ Booking Office in Oban, Stewart Island. Book ahead.
