We’ve visited dozens of lighthouses in many countries and Nugget Point truly is unique because of its beautiful setting. We had hoped to get an iconic sunrise or sunset photo, but the weather didn’t cooperate. However, the location at the end of a winding walk...More

A viewpoint and a small lighthouse located above the see, half way between Dunedin and Invercargill. Not bad, you can make some nice pictures, but nothing too impressive. No harm if you miss it.

The walk out to the lighthouse was well worth it. The views are stunning and we saw seals playing on the rocks beneath us.

We stayed in the Caitlins over Christmas - what a beautiful region. Very unspoiled and under populated. This is a 15 minute drive a little of the main road and a short incline walk to the lighthouse and the Nuggets. You will definitely be pleased...More

Well worth the drive and the walk! The road up to Nugget Point already offers great views, but nothing compared to what you get from the viewing platform in front of the lighthouse. Watch the seals play in the water beneath you. Take in the...More

A long drive from Dunedin but very nice and scenic towards the later part of the drive. Keep an eye out on the beach to your left as you drive past Kaka Point. You may encounter some seals lying idle, a perfect photo op. Just...More
