The scenery on the drive was stunning and they continued on our walk to nugget point. Unlike other reviewers, there was only about 20 people when we went, so I didn't find it busy. Amazing wild-life on the way- fur seals and sea lions.

The drive to area is only 20 mins from Town good parking and signage is well located along the way walk is about 900 m uphill but not overly steep, the view at the lighthouse is worth the time we could even hear the baby seals on the shore line along walk

Walked this track on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Always a very busy place. Would highly recommend putting this on your must do list.

10/10 it was the most BEAUTIFUL and PHOTOGENIC place I visited. We saw so many seals swimming around in the clear water with their babies. The views are wonderful. The walk there is easy and is stunning the entire way. An absolute must visit.

Our visit was fitted in as a side trip during a drive from Dunedin to Te Anau. We had spotted the detour was about 60km and weren’t sure whether to embark on the extra driving. In the end we were glad we had. The road from Balclutha is well-signposted and sealed all the way. I gather that hasn’t always been the case. Beautiful drive from Kaka Point to Nugget Point. Ample parking and a toilet before taking to the track to walk to the lighthouse. It is well maintained and makes a good short walk. Stunning views of the lighthouse and rocks beyond, as well as north and south along the coastline. It really was worth the drive! Recommend it if you are as close as Balclutha.
