Walk to Slope Point

One needs to drive over a bit of dirt, albeit a well maintained gravel road and then walk. For about 15 minutes we walked through a privately owned paddock of very quiet sheep and cattle and lots of dropping, so take care where you plant your feet. The wind was so strong it was a bit of a challenge to walk into it and to steady ourselves to take the obligatory photos, that in itself was an experience. I can understand why the trees in this area are so twisted and bent over. There are nice sweeping views of the rugged coastline. The spray from the crashing waves was impressive, maybe less so when the tidal and wind conditions are different. Worth a detour, if just to say that you have visited the southern most Point of the New Zealand mainland.
