g. HTalisker Log June 2002/3
more winter is upon us. However
we have been blessed with magic
weather over the summer and autumn. Probably the best we can remember for
Fiordland. In seven weeks up there we had only four days rain.
This year we spent much more then usual of our Fiordland time in Preservation & Chalky . It was good to “re-discover” these less well known southern sounds. They have some very beautiful hidden corners and excellent walks to enjoy.
Rakiura National Park
Stewart Island now a National Park
we are spending more and more of our time exploring the Island and have hosted
several journalists and photographers, including Warren Judd from “NZ
Geographic”, Jenny & Tony Enderby from “Lonely Planet Underwater” and
Gilbert van Reenen from “Clean Green Images”.
It’s always interesting looking at the Island through their eyes.
Pegasus is still our favourite destination and with 90% of next years bookings
going there, are looking forward to the coming season even more than usual.
of Conservation staff are slowly opening the old tram track to the Pegasus Tin
Mines, giving our guests another opportunity to explore a fragment of the Island’s past.
Between “Live Aboard “ charters we have been very busy showing Island visitors some of the wonders to be found around Paterson Inlet on day and half day exploration cruises. Ulva Island and particularly the bird life there has delighted both our guests and ourselves.

Conservation management policies .
Our program for the coming year includes a University research program in Fiordland and also hosting a Natural History film as well as many parties wanting to explore our southern coasts.
This year we are starting a new project. We are upgrading our house to include two superior home stay apartments and hope to be available in early 2003. This has been planned for several years and now its happening. We are calling it “Sails Ashore” and information is available on our web site at:-
