Oban, the one outpost of civilisation on this untamed island, is a town like no other. With a population of around 400, Oban is bursting with character. The locals are notoriously friendly and are more than willing to share their pride in their heritage.
Oban caters to all budgets, from first-rate restaurant Church Hill to shoestring backpacker fare. Accommodation can be arranged through Stewart Island Flights.
Experience the local culture down at the pub or unwind in the tranquillity of the native forest setting. Oban is great either as a final destination or as a stepping stone to more adventurous pursuits. From Oban you can access a number of fishing charters, diving expeditions, exciting sea-kayaking around Paterson Inlet and many beautiful bush walks. The Oban experience is what you make it, but its always guaranteed to be unforgettable.
