  • This short walk is a wonderful experience. It is only 1km to the lighthouse and on the way we saw seals playing in rock pools below us. The views along the walk are stunning. Great photo...  more »
  • Access to the lighthouse is via a well formed path by the side of the hill, sheer drops on your left hand side. The sheer drops down makes it rather nice for spotting the seals sunbathing down below. The Nugget Point Lighthouse is not a majestic lighthouse, but the view as you make the last turn around the light house is just pure breathtakingly beautiful, especially on a day with clear blue skies. Pack your picnic snack to spend some time here and take in the scenery while trying to spot the seals down below.
  • Love visiting lighthouses around NZ. Saw fur seals (or may have been sea lions) on way to lighthouse and stunning views of the southern ocean once their. Great trip from Invercargill through the Catlins to get there. Lots of photo stops there and back. Great day out!
