Oban Guide

Oban Ferry Port

Oban is found on the popular tourist destination of Stewart Island, the third largest belonging to New Zealand. The only ferry route departing the port is to Bluff on South Island, supplied by Stewart Island Experience Ferries and typically lasts around an hour.

What is there to do in Oban?

A sleepy island predominantly inhabited by fishermen, Oban and Stewart Island is the perfect place for visitors to escape the stress of New Zealand’s busy cities and bask in the beautiful nature synonymous with the island. As well as fishing, the main pastime is birdwatching or animal spotting; along the shoreline lie a myriad of unusual animals such as Cape Pigeons, mollymawks and even penguins can be found dotted around the coast. Whilst witnessing the wildlife in the great outdoors, it makes sense to embark on one of the intriguing walking trails scattered around the beautiful terrain. The views from the top of some of the challenging hills and mountains are breathtaking enough to make the journey there worthwhile. After a long day outside, savour some of the delicious food served at the wide range of restaurants, with seafood typically being the special of the day.

How do visitors get around Oban?

Oban is so small that it is possible to cover the entirety of it by foot, which is the desirable option considering the alluring walking trails and picturesque views.
