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.

Though it is not the southern most point of the South Island, it’s the southern most of SH1. The Stirling Point is as attractive as 10 years ago but Bluff has become more vibrant and beautiful compared to the past. Well impressed.

Great place to take photos of the surrounding coast line. There are walking options from this location to the coastal lookout and Bluff Hill. There is a restaurant and hotel at this location. Plenty of information on the history of Bluff.

We had a picturesque drive from Invercargill, the male having some how estimated the drive time as the cycling time! The bonus was a fabulous sunrise sky before arriving at bluff. The iconic sign and kiwi saying "from Cape Reinga to Bluff" makes sense for the other half now.

We didn't realise there was this much to see. First time to Bluff and the bottom of the North Island, and we didn't know it was so interesting. Car parking a little tricky (and this is off-season - goodness knows what happens in the peak of summer). Nice walk to the lighthouse, with good views and birds and dolphins around the coastline. Take lunch or a snack and spend some time in the area.

Almost the bottom of the South Island. (Slope Point is).

Catchy place for tourist photos.

Lighthouse nearby also interesting.

Nothing much to see out there and it’s bloody cold but it’s a must-see landmark if you want to cross your bucket list of being at the most bottom part of the South Island of New Zealand.

See what truly stops NZ from rejoining Australia and how far away we really are from anything.
Our first day to explore the magnificent South Island took us on a drive from Wanaka to Bluff the longer way via Otago, through hills and valleys of Alexandra to Gore. Some beautifully stunning mountains and farms were passed too as we weaved our way south. Onward, toward the southern most town of the South Island. Bluff host oyster shucking competitions - in May (no oysters seen in December). The sign post lived up to its photographic iconic-ness! And there’s even a restaurant just there if you want! First experience of the South Island talkin’ loo (bathroom) too what a hoot!
Disappear to the ends of ... NZ ... and see what Mariners of old would have - oceans tempestuously beating - or waves rolling in on a smooth rock shore.

The signposts are not the only things of interest at Stirling Point. There are 2 car parks. Stop at the first. There is a small lighthouse, with pleanty of information on the history of the area. My youngest dropped to the beach to do rock pool exploring. Walk 1 min further on and you get the chain. The other end is the start of the Stewart Island Great Walk. 1 min further on is the signposts, but go further and walk along the coast to the view point or/and up to Bluff Hill or walk them all like we did.
