Bottom of the Southland area with signposts to the world. Bring jackets and warm clothing. Also make sure you bring phone or camera for those pictures.

Visited on Wednesday 2nd May. It is well worth stopping to have a look and get your photo taken here at the bottom of the South Island, New Zealand's answer to Land's End.

We stayed at Lands End Hotel which is directly across the street from the Stirling Point signpost. The drive down from Invercargill is disappointing, but the view is great once you get there. It’s a beautiful spot, but I’m not sure I’d make the drive...More
