"Nugget Point" South Island Favorite Tip by rozehill
South Island General: 21 reviews and 26 photos
Favorite thing: Nugget Point is located 4 kilometres south of Nugget Bay. This rocky 11 kilometre long headland is a breeding area for gannets, sooty shearwaters, shags and yellow-eyed penguins. Fur seals and sea lions also gather below the historic lighthouse, built in 1869. The point is named after the cluster of rocks scattered about its base, referred to by early whalers as 'The Nuggets'.
