Southern Limits

Our Story...

Welcome to our take on this unique island - the place we call home, and where you will feel “right at home”. Stewart Island is a rare find: a place that elicits awe, yet offers opportunities for relaxation and invigoration. That is why we choose to live here and why we take great pleasure in sharing our love of the island with our clients and guests.
A little about “us” - important because we are your potential guides, companions, fishing buddies and know-it-all locals. We are an enthusiastic and energetic couple, who love their work and are determined to offer the best services possible. Having said that, we are nevertheless relaxed and good-humored and will ensure that your time with us is relaxing and informal.
Brett is a born ‘n’ bred islander whose heritage goes back four generations to the early European settlers to Rakiura. Being an outdoorsman (as are his sons) he has grown up knowing the island intimately - he knows places you will love to be. Kate is Brett’s complementary half and shares with him a love of the south, a home, a family and Southern Limits.
We call ourselves Southern Limits because we are on the edge of the Southern Ocean - next stop Antarctica. Unfortunately we don’t yet have the means to take you that far south. That will be the next business venture. At Southern Limits we are dedicated to providing “The Real Experience”.
