  • to get to the point you have to jump a gate into a paddock (was full of sheep when we visited), walk through to the point where there's signage and an amazing view.  more »
  • A fairly long drive down some gravel roads off the main road. From here it's about a ten minute walk to slope point. The wind can be biting here and makes the walk that much tougher if you're not used to it.
  • Small parking area, nice for a stop over to say you've been at the most southerly point of the south island. Dramatic cliffs and rocky surf the best part of the view
  • On a clear day you'd probably get beautiful ocean views if you take the short walk down to the signpost near the cliffs that marks the most Southerly point of the South Island of New Zealand. If you're unlucky, like I was, you'll fight your way through the sheep field in gale force winds and driving rain so you can get a photo of the sign against a grey sky with almost zero visibility. I'm still glad I went though.
  • Nothing particularly special about this place. Nice views, but not worth the jarring drive across kilometres of unsealed road.
  • Beaaautiful place! You are in the most southern place of the south island. You'll get amazing views here
