There is no road to Slope Point; it must be reached by a 20-minute walk following dilapidated yellow markers. There is no public access during the lambing season (September – November).
The land around Slope Point is used for sheep farming with no houses anywhere nearby. Eroded cliffs drop down to the sea below. An AA signpost there shows the distance to the Equator and the South Pole, and a small solar-powered lighthouse stands on farmland.

Nice beaches and nice wildlife and nature.
Short walk to the viewpoint. Stay close to the fence to avoid a detour. Nice view and saw a white rainbow (halo).

Just a short way to the most southern point of the South Island. Nice view!
Awesome when windy, great waves, sit and enjoy it.

Quite nice to be at the most southern point of the New Zealand mainland, but a little unspectacular. Formation of trees shaped by the wind are nearby.
Nice scenery in the southernmost part of the South Island. Jump from the cliff in the cold, clean water if you are crazy enough.
Nice to walk next to some sheep. We were the only people there because it was early in the morning - so that is a tip.

We were the only one there at that moment. Nice place to take some pictures.
Good place, nice 20 minute walk, stunning view, the lowest point in New Zealand.

Slope Point is the southern most point of New Zealand. The walk is easy and you can see the distance between you and the equator/south pole.
Most Southern part of the South Island. Good views but not spectacular.
Take a 15 minute walk to the Southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand and soak in the amazing view from the cliffs over the ocean! Next stop is the South Pole!!
Nice and short walk to the most southern part of New Zealand! The distance to the South Pole and the equator are pointed, so you can make fun photos with that. The landscape around is really beautiful!
