Bluff is one of the oldest European settlements in New Zealand. Come here to enjoy the scent of the sea and the rugged character of an oystering port.
The port of Bluff is the home of Bluff oysters – reputed to be the best in the world. The oyster season runs from April until August, and 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.
In Bluff you can catch a ferry to Stewart Island and Rakiura National Park, tour the aluminium smelter and get some exercise on the local walkways. In the Greenpoint picnic area, a viewing platform overlooks the ship graveyard. A signpost at Stirling Point indicates the distance to the South Pole and other parts of the world.
Functional facts: Approx. population 1800, ferry port, limited accommodation.
