Bluff is located at the bottom of the South Island, New Zealand, in the province of Southland and is the 'Gateway to Stewart Island'. A 20-minute drive from Invercargill city.

State Highway 1 starts at Bluff's Stirling Point, an attraction in itself. Stirling Point is to New Zealand what Landsend is to Great Britain. Bluff is unique in the fact that it is the oldest European-settled town in New Zealand, added to that it has had a very colourful past, some of which can be discovered at the local Maritime Museum.

Bluff has a lot to offer the discerning traveller with attractions such as Bluff Maritime Museum, Stirling Point, panoramic views from the viewing platform on top of Bluff Hill (Motupohe), and our highly recommended walking tracks.

The Southern Scenic Route is a great way to travel around the province of Southland and Bluff is ideally placed on the Southern Scenic Route to stop and spend some time.


Bluff Maritime Museum

A "must visit" for anyone travelling along the Southern Scenic Route, with fascinating historical information about the many early shipwrecks in these challenging southern waters and coastlines. You will be able to visit many of these sites as you make your way along the Catlins Coast towards Dunedin. While the museum has a maritime theme with displays on whaling, oystering, shipwrecks, and the construction of the Bluff Harbour Board, it also delves into the history of Bluff.

Bluff Heritage Trail

The Bluff History Group's Heritage Trail is another fantastic new attraction for the area. Featuring seventeen sites, the trail begins at the Greenhills Church and takes you to a variety of sites including the Greenpoint Walkway, the Monica, several buildings and homes of historic interest, the old Bluff Cemetery and Stirling Point to name just a few. Brochures are available from many selected outlets in Bluff.

Stewart Island Experience Ferry Services

Unspoilt, relaxing and incredibly beautiful, Stewart Island is a showcase for untouched natural New Zealand. Just a 1 hour ferry ride from Bluff, Stewart Island is one of New Zealand's largely undiscovered eco-tourism destinations. With its network of stunning bays, inlets, golden sand beaches and densely forested hills, Stewart Island combines a spectacular mix of breathtaking landscapes.

Bluff Hill (Motupohue)

The Bluff Hill/Motupohue area provides visitors to the area with spectacular views over Foveaux Strait and the Southland Plains, a well-established track network, mountain bike track, car park and interpretation panels. Original native forest, wind-battered coast and scrub-covered hillsides are some of the delights of Bluff Hill/Motupohue.

Stirling Point

Stirling Point marks the southern end of State Highway 1, which runs the length of New Zealand. The point is memorable for the large signpost displaying distances to major cities in the world - a photograph of this signpost is a must for your travel journey.
