The walk up to the lookout was steep, along some quiet roads then through a nature reserve, but nothing to write home about. A good view of the entire bay, but the port dominates. If you don't mind the noise and enjoy watching a port, then you'd enjoy it. The garden at the lookout was ordinary. I only spent about 10 minutes the lookout because there really wasn't that much to see and do.

If you don't manage to get up to the lookout, you won't have missed much.

Was here while on a business trip to Invercargill (not the most exciting place on earth) and drove to Bluff to try and eat some bluff oysters. Was too late by a week... had to suffice with the view and was really a good place for nice photos.
Be wary of strong winds, though.. hat blew off the second I got out of the car!

The views of the port and beaches gives a nice perspective on the area. You may be able to view cargo operations at the port depending on what vessels are in. The trip up is a bit daunting through winding neighborhood roads but do not give up, theres a good view and nice park at the end.

Brilliant views of surrounding areas. Take a jacket though, on cooler days, the wind is breezy up there!

If you are wanting an amazing view of harbour and napier Bluff Hill Lookout is a must! We went up on an absolutely clear blue sky day and it was incredible!
