The drive up the hill is steep. Not sure whether a manual drive can make it all the way up. The views from top are really beautiful. Quiet windy place. The walking trail may also be good. Worth the drive.

Cool, a must visit place when you are in Bluff or Invercargill. We enjoy the sunset and nice view here. Much better than the signpost stirling point.

You must visit this place if you have got to Invercargill. You have enough idea - look out to Stewart Island, I will get there someday!

Very hard to grade. Lovely walk but with major concerns and reservations. When you get to Sterling Point, you will see signposted a coastal track that branches off to the left and brings you back approximately to Sterling Point. If you take the first right,...More

Wow that;'s a steep hill, luckily we drove up, I sure wouldn't want to walk or ride up. Great views of the region.
