#3 of 8 in Things to do in Bluff
Bluff Hill includes excellent views along the shore and through native forest, whether you're mountain biking or walking. Standing at 265 m (870 ft), the top of the hill has a magnificent vantage point over Southland Plains and Fouveaux Strait. Cyclists will appreciate the mountain biking here, while the ever-popular walking trails suit a range of trekking abilities. The famous sign at Stirling Point as well as the nearby pilot station also hold some historical interest. For those driving, an onsite parking lot provides easy access.
