This is worth walking across to if you really enjoy being at the various extremities of the mainland which I do . It is a little difficult to see where the path goes and some signage would be useful.

Awesome views and you can feel the power of the ocean as it meets the southern-most edge of the South Is. Really decent of the farmer to share their land with visitors. We were lucky that it wasn't a windy day, as you can see by the tortured trees how full on the prevailing wind can be, although admittedly that would have added to the experience.

If you like ticking places off, this needs to be on your list. No doubt you know about Slope Point if you're reading this, so just a bit of info. We went in October, which is when it is supposed to be closed for lambing, but it was totally accessible (with just a warning note on the gate about respecting stock etc and an 'enter at your own risk' type comment. A 10 minute walk to the point and sign, easy going (although probably a bit slushy in the wet/winter) and done. If you're doing the Catlins road, this is is must. Good fun.

A wet and windy day so unable to do the walk, but the views from the car park where very interesting.

Iconic trees showing the effect of the wind

Great views and well worth the walk even though it was often at a strange angle into the wind. Not many people there when we went so we were able to have a good look around - the views are fantastic - the cliff edge is not fenced off so keep a good control on any exuberant children. Highly recommend

The last stop of a trip exploring this area. Really wanted to get a pic of the wind blown trees, which I did. Didn't get to the signpost as the weather put me off, plus I had my dog and dogs weren't allowed

The 20 minute walk to the southern most point of the South Island and therefore the New Zealand mainland across farmland did nothing to prepare us for the sensational wind swept cliff faces at the point. This is high, rugged and vertigo inducing coastal beauty with more stunning views down the coast each way. At this point you are 5140 km from the Equator and 4803 km from the South Pole.

A journey worth taking if only to say that you have reached the Southernmost tip of New Zealand. No, this is NOT Bluff, as so often believed. Here, not only have you completed a journey of geographic significance, but you can be battered by significant gusts of wind, which the surrounding trees will attest to have been doing for far longer than yourself. Here also is some stunning sea scape, with crashing waves even on a calm day.

You've come this far so you may as well take a 20 minute walk through a farmers field and have your picture taken at the southernmost spot on the south island. It is a pleasant enough scenic walk; totally exposed to the weather though so might not be worth it in a strong southerly.

You get some indication that the place your visiting is remote when Google Street have not yet been there :-) To add to our bragging rights this was our second time!

Well I suppose it is the southern most point of South Island, NZ so Google may be on their way - according to the sign it is only 4803km (or 2984 miles) to the South Pole. The most southerly point gives a reason to visit especially if you are in the area in any case and you could be if you are taking a few detours off the Southern Scenic Route (e.g. it's not far to Waipapa Point Lighthouse).

The road had been sealed since our previous trip in 2013 which makes it slightly easier to reach. During our visit this time there was a steady stream of visitors and the car park had been enlarged to accommodate them. It's a 15 minute walk or so each way from there along a well worn path across fields although on this occasion we had to share the route with grazing cattle. No big deal as they are probably used to having company. I'm not sure who is responsible for the ground erosion, the cattle, the visitors or the weather but there is quite a bit of it in this area.

Note that, notwithstanding the livestock, there is an absence of fences at the cliff edges so be careful if you get close - there are high winds and it is a long way down.

There are some good views along the coastline weather permitting and on this occasion we were fortunate to be able to see for some distance.

Best to have a warm layer on as it is a cold wind at the best of times and if it is capable of bending the nearby trees into a permanent "slope" it must be formidable. We were again having to brace ourselves at times to avoid being blown over.

There are no facilities in this remote location.
