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.


Dear Jenny and Ian,

Belatedly I am getting around to my correspondence after my return to the UK....we had just the best time staying with you.

Thank you for the porridge,delicious home made bread and jam.You really made us all feel so much at home and it was sad that we had to leave. We had a good drive up to Queenstown and had a great time there. Milford Sound was great.Planning our trip back next June for the Lions Tour so beware!

Thank you again for our lovely stay with you,we won't forget it

Keep well

Lindy,Gail,James and Grahame
