At the beginning of our tour this was such a beautiful view, with Frank from Frankly tours talking about the area and the history of Napier. Such a beautiful location.

The lookout has a pretty garden and is well maintained. The view from the top is fine, nothing too spectacular. You get a nicer view below on the waterfront or by visiting Te Mata. The road to the lookout is very narrow in stretches and...More

When in Napier a visit up here is a must. We drove up though people do enjoy a walk to the top... as seen as we drove past them 😊

Good drive up Bluff hill, seeing all the houses and awkward driveways. Once up its a great view. Good place for a picnic

We drove up the hill after driving by the port. It was helpful in our perception from the top of the bluff. The sunset was spectacular!

Beautiful views of the bay. The gardens were very pretty and some nice birding. Not a very big park, but still a nice place to get a panorama out to Cape Kidnappers.

What an amazing view so proud to be a kiwi. Having said that the drive to the top is so scary, you need nerves of steel, however it is so worth it.

Hubby and I drove up to Bluff Hill Lookout and loved the view of the port! We didn’t stay long as it started to get a tad windy and cold but perfect on a fine day :)

We enjoyed the excellent views from the Bluff Hill lookout. Toilets , parking all very good . Just be careful with small kids as the fence by the Bluff is relatively liw and the drop very steep.

I think you would need a reasonable level of fitness as it is a wee bit of a climb. Enjoy.

Take a cab/Uber?? This is a lookout point that we walked to it from our bed & breakfast.
