“Beautiful picnic spot while walking the Abel Tasman”
Review of Stilwell Bay

Stilwell Bay
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A quiet bay, swimming is safe and welcome after a long walk. Waters lapping and clear: ideal picnic spot too:
only sad thing is that either the boaties or other trampers seem to leave bits of their rubbish behind.. :(

My mother had holidayed here until she was 12, the bay use to be called Astrolab but was renamed after mums family because her father and grandfather built houses here.It is still untouched, only accesable by sea or the walking track. There is a toilet here now and it has a lovely veiw of Adele Island, its golden sand, clear water, creek to play in, there use to be a water wheel here, a little waterfall, is on the track, Lessons Creek is on the sign. I have seen alot of photos of Stilwell Bay in peoples holiday photos, especially on Tripadvisor. But they just call it a lovely bay, its so untouched and proud it will stay that way, great stop for a swim and camp, highly recommended
