Ulva Island.

While I was traveling around the South Island with my friend Sunny I finally made it down to Stewart Island. I had always wanted to go to Stewart Island and was so happy to be there. While at the information center the lady there recommended a trip over to Ulva Island. It was our last day on Stewart Island and we were booked on the ferry in the afternoon. So it was arranged that I would get the water taxi at 9am and return to Stewart Island at noon. I only had a short time there but I fell in love with this little island paradise. Ulva Island is a native bird sanctuary and the bird song that you can here is amazing. I loved every minute I spent exploring this island and was amazed by the native birds I was able to see up close. I saw wekas, saddlebacks, tomtits, a rifleman, stweart island robins, kaka, tuis bellbirds, fantails and New Zealand pigeons. Before I left Stewart Island I bought a DVD about Ulva Island called Primeval Paradise. I have this on my ipod so I can relive the magic of Ulva Island anythime. You can get the DVD from the cool gift shop on the way to Golden Bay, at the visitor center or at
