Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The views from the top of the hill are amazing. Brilliant opportunity to take lots of photos. There is a lot of information and a map that shows the surrounding landmarks and islands. We walked along the coastal track, then up the millennium track to the lookout. Great views along the coastal walkway, plenty of information particularly the history around settlement and being used as a defense post.

A very brief visit to the top of the lookout on a cold, wet and windy day. These are probably normal conditions. The view is good and worth the short detour out of town. Ample parking near the summit.

Excellent views across the inlet, great vantage point to see beaches, nearby islands, and farm areas. A very beautiful area.

Well worth having a look if you're in the area. Easy drive up and parking at the top or walk up for a good workout. Great views over Bluff and, on a nice day, out to Stuart Island (See pics). Hold on to your hat tho' as it blows a goodun' up there.

We had a beautiful bush walk through the glory track while in Bluff. It was indeed glorious and the track was so well maintained. We then decided to drive up to the top of the hill to see the view. The views were absolutely amazing and the information panels were an added bonus.

Don't go up when the wind is strong as it can really blow! Great viewing. Quite long walk so not so good for disabled, but path is paved.

One of those "when in....." moments. Treated to a stunning sky on the way, we headed straight for the hill.

We drove up Bluff Hill and it was well worth the drive. The circular monument at the top is magnificent with its timeline which I throughly enjoyed reading as I walked up to the top. Choose a good clear day as there is a fantastic 360 degree view from the top all very clearly explained with the circular information board.
