Welcome to Bluff
Mention Bluff to any New Zealander and we bet they'll think of oysters. Bluff is Invercargill’s port, windswept and more than a little bleak, located at the end of a protruding strip of land, 27km south of the city. Bluff's bulging bivalves are among the South Island's most prized produce, guzzled with gusto between March and August, and feted with a festival in May.
Outside oyster season, the main reason folk come here is to catch the ferry to Stewart Island/Rakiura, catch some maritime nostalgia at the museum, or pose for photos beside the Stirling Point signpost.
