Slope Point.....THE Southermost point on the South Island.
It is located just south of Waikawa, and north of Otara. To reach the point you take a short 20min walk along a track on private property. Sheep are plenty in this area, and the grass is so.. green!
A AA signpost at Slope Point shows the distance to the Equator and the South Pole.
The views are great of the rocky coastline and surrounding cliffs and the wind power is incredible, it took me all my effort to stand on my own two feet, and I made sure I didn't stand too near the cliff edge. Not only is the wind strong, but it is cold! straight from Antartica I think!
Have a look at the photo, that shows how much and how strong the wind is here. There is a Hut hidden in behind the Trees!
Located about 70kms from Invercargill
