We made a couple of visits to the DoC office and purchased some maps/gifts and brochures. Friendly staff writer willing to share their knowledge and love of the area. Interesting displays. Oh, and the [outside] toilets were helpful too!

I almost wish I had popped in earlier as the lovely lady had some suggestions I would have put into my trip. Some great maps and information available and a small gift shop which was nice to browse through.

Plenty of Information

An excellent source of information pertaining to walking/hiking on Stewart Island from a couple of hours to a few days. Also a good place to identify the calls of birds you may hear when out and about. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.

A great place to get inside information on Stewart Island
Jul 2020
We called into the DOC office a couple of times during our visit. They were very helpful/knowledgeable about the island and activities and friendly. Would definitely recommend you pop in to speak to them about what to do on the island and to get tips about spotting wildlife.

Good gift shop. Helpful staff. We were not walking the Rakiura Track but were given very good ideas for shorter walks on Stewart Island.
