The Bluff Camping Ground is unique and is 1.5km from Land's End, New Zealand; where the journey can both begin and end. Land's End is officially called Stirling Point and is 3000km from the northernmost Cape Reinga. Bluff is the start point and the terminus for the increasingly popular Te Araroa hiking trail and the gateway to Stewart Island, one of the most picturesque offshore destinations in the world.
Bluff has among the finest coastal bush walks in New Zealand. The network embraces the shoreline around the 265m-high Bluff Hill. Tracks go all the way to the summit, where there's a fantastic viewing platform. A visit to Stirling Point is a must, as is the mandatory selfie at the signpost showing the distance and direction to various major cities and global landmarks, including the Equator and the South Pole. Bluff is home to the 12-strong Foveaux Strait oyster fleet. Bluff oysters are renowned for their succulence and flavour. The season is from March until August. The Bluff Maritime Museum is highly recommended. In recent years Bluff has become the base for the increasingly popular shark-cage diving. The camping ground has an excellent children's playground.
