  • We felt this was over rated, there was an ok view compared to other spots close by. Get a photo with the ‘south pole’ sign. Tick the box activity. Don’t go out of your way to go here  more »
  • Plenty of parking here, i would suggest avoiding the deep gravel as your car may get stuck. Can see the amazing wind swept trees from here and also the short walk to Slope point starts from this carpark. Road to here is about 10km of unsealed road and then a further 6km of sealed road, so caution is advised
  • There is nothing special about Slope point BUT the forest nearby is a different story. Amazing spooky crooked trees because of strong wind. Worth a visit.
  • Terrible drive over large gravel for over 4-5km. A 20mins walk from the parking area to the signage which is near the cliff. Nice scenery but not worth the drive
  • Interesting for the photo at the end of the walk however not worth it if you are in a hurry.
  • This is one of the southern place in New Zealand and in the world. If you are around here you have to go!
