Ulva Island, New Zealand
Ulva Island (from Scottish Gaelic: Eilean na Ulbha) is a small island about 3.5 km long lying within Paterson Inlet, which is part of Stewart Island/Rakiura in New Zealand. It has an area of about 270 hectares, the majority of which is public land. It was named after Ulva Island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, and was formerly called Coopers Island. Ulva Island's relative isolation, but easy access from Stewart Island has allowed it to become an important natural resource area.
Paterson Inlet is a large natural harbour in the eastern coast of Stewart Island/Rakiura, New Zealand, much of which is unspoilt forest. This region was first inhabited by the Māori, who settled at a locale known as The Neck, which is a long peninsula that extends across the mouth of the inlet from the southern coast. The only town on Stewart Island, Oban is located on the north coast of the inlet, close to its mouth. In earlier times, the inlet was used as a base for whaling.
The Rakiura Track is a 29-kilometre tramping track on Stewart Island/Rakiura, New Zealand, and one of the New Zealand Great Walks.
