A nice trip to the top of the hill to see what we could see... what we saw was the sea, the port and more sea... A nice gentle place to relax and look out across the bay. Nothing more, nothing less. If you’re here...More

Watched the enormous number of containers and timber logs being loaded. Narrow winding road to the top but the view is worth it.

It.s gorgeous up there. Beautiful views of the bay and you can waste a lot of time watching the bustle at the port. Will take a pucnic next time.

The views from Bluff Lookout are fantastic, especially looking north west over the busy, working harbour. The views further south are a little limited. There is plenty of space and parking with clean toilet facilities available.

Very windy but that's to be expected. Awesome view, ample parking. If you do chose to drive up (although the walk is nice) be careful with the narrow road, as it can be hard to see other cars coming down. Definitely worth the trip.

A steep walk to it though, but when you reach the viewing point it's worth it as you can see the full panorama of Napier from above
