Separated from the South Island by Foveaux Strait, Stewart Island/Rakiura is New Zealand's third largest island and home to its most southern national park. The North West Circuit provides for challenging tramping around the island's northern coast.
Rakeahua Valley and Doughboy Bay on the Southern Circuit Track can be added to the Northern Circuit. Alternatively the separate Southern Circuit Track incorporating these areas can be walked by utilising boat transport on Paterson Inlet.
