Horseshoe Point Track

Braggs Bay Road, Stewart Island

Maintained by Southland District Council, the 3-4 hour Horseshoe Point Track meanders along the coast from the end of Bragg Bay Road, winding above secluded bays and crystal clear water. It descends steeply down to Dead Man Beach, which despite the name, is a pleasant spot to stop for a rest. Horseshoe Point is about an hour’s walk from Bragg Bay and is an ideal place to view Foveaux Strait. From the point, the track passes under huge macrocarpa trees, remnants of a former homestead site, and eventually finishes beside the entrance to the Resource Recovery Centre.
