“Gotta be done”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

When you are near by you have just got to make a trip to visit the Southern most point on the mainland.

Don't expect too much, there's signpost and thats about it but that's the point!

Make sure you take a trip up Bluff Hill as well....

“When you are there, take the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

The Foveaux Walkway to the lookout is well worth doing.
It starts at the Stirling Point carpark and is an easy walk which Peter Janssen describes as 1 hour 20 minutes return but it took us a little over two hours. It follows the coastline all the way and passes close to nesting shags.
The lookout provides a magnificent, clear view of the strait and across to Stewart Island. We were very lucky to meet a local man who was checking rat traps and he proved to be one of the best guides we met on our travels.
We were quite happy to leave our car and gear in the carpark. There were people coming and going all the time.
We had lunch at the Drunken Sailor Cafe after the walk - a really good combination!
