The port of Bluff is the home of Bluff oysters – reputed to be the best in the world. The oyster season runs from April to August, and in May the locals put on a lively festival to honour Ostrea chilensis (that’s Latin for Bluff oyster).
The maritime museum has exhibits that focus on whaling, oystering and shipwrecks. Greenpoint Domain offers a coastal walking track, and from the picnic area, a viewing platform overlooks a ship graveyard.
Take a photo with the signpost at Stirling Point; located at the end of State Highway 1 (which runs the full length of the country), it indicates the distance to the South Pole and other parts of the world.
From Bluff you can catch a ferry to Stewart Island and Rakiura National Park, a journey that takes about an hour.
