Welcome to Bushy Point Fernbirds
Eco-friendly bed & breakfast for nature lovers.

We are a completely unique Bed & Breakfast in Southland New Zealand with a natural environment ideal for birdwatching or just chilling out. There is no passing traffic, we are so secluded you feel you are staying in a B&B deep in the forest

In reality we are only 10 minutes drive from Invercargill city. We are even closer to the airport and 25 minutes from Bluff port both of which provide transport to Rakiura (Stewart Island). We are 2.5 hours drive from Queenstown which is the closest international airport. All this makes it the perfect location for accommodation before or following Rakiura (Stewart Island) or the Catlins coast and Fiordland on the Southern Scenic route.

Included in our tariff this season is a guided walk. We explain our history with this place and the natural history of the reserve. With some luck we may show you fernbirds.

You may also walk the track and boardwalk on our pest protected reserve at your leisure. Recover from your journey in total peace and quiet. We offer free wireless internet.

Stay in accommodation you will remember always as part of your New Zealand experience. A small slice of New Zealand the way it used to be.
