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.
You can access the Foveaux Walkway from Stirling Point. This walkway consists of two separate but connected trails on Bluff Hill peninsula. Both traverse a wide variety of vegetation, including native bush (with a variety of native birds), coastal scrub and privately owned farmland. There are stunning views of Foveaux Strait and Stewart Island, as well as wave-beaten rocks and beaches. After the walk, which almost circumnavigates the peninsula, a visit to the top of Bluff Hill is worthwhile for an extensive panoramic view.
