A beautiful forest track leading walkers to the top of Bluff Hill.
This is an easily negotiated and well graded walking track and boardwalk that is accessible to wheelchairs. A beautiful and scenic walk, the 15 minute one way track follows the shoreline to Greenpoint, providing awe-inspiring panoramic views across Bluff Harbour.
The walk takes you past some of New Zealand's oldest rocks and a thriving wildlife community. The end of the track at Greenpoint is an excellent picnic spot and there is also a viewing platform that overlooks a ship graveyard and identifies some of Bluff Harbour's historic landmarks.
The walkway begins opposite the Greenpoint Cemetry and is well signposted on State Highway 1 on your way to and from Bluff.
Note: Dog access is allowed if the dog is on a leash. Go here for more dog friendly walks and areas in Southland.
