Southern Limit

As far south as we can go in the South Island of New Zealand – Slope Point, The Catlins, Southland. To get there you drive country roads till you reach the carpark. Then it’s a reasonable distance walking over farmland (and carefully avoiding the animal manure) before you reach the Slope Point signpost and small solar-powered lighthouse.

Slope Point

Southern most point of the South Island of New Zealand. Very steep cliffs. I ventured as close as I dared on this moderately gusty day.

    1. As I said to Ellen it’s so simple at this location. Just the lighthouse and sign. You can look toward Antarctica and there’s no distractions, nothing commercial. It’s literally a breath of fresh air. If only you could come and breathe this air I think you’d be forever healed.
