Regular visitors to Napier and on most occasions head up to the Bluff Hill lookout. Never tire of the view from up there, looking over the Port and Napier Bay. A recommended thing to do at Napier and best of all - its free.

To be honest I am glad we drove to the top but I have seen better lookout views in New Zealand. The view overlooking the docks is the best.

Bluff Hill offers an unparalleled view of Napier and Hawke's Bay. Walking up there not for the faint-hearted. Steep, but well worth it.

A very winding road to get up to the viewpoint but well worth the effort. Great view over the port and beyond.
