Slope Point

A place of wonder

Spectacular views of windswept trees, southern ocean waves crashing onto the rocks and a photo opportunity at an iconic signpost are features of this southernmost point of the South Island.

Slope Point lies approximately 24 kms from the small settlement of Waikawa.  The signpost and cliff edge is an easy flat walk across private farmland from the carpark.  If there are sheep present, there is no public access during the lambing season (September – November). Please respect the animals and do not disturb the livestock (sheep and/or cattle) if present.

Car park to sign post – 10 minutes one way.
