About this spot
For this point we could say it is Down Under and a little bit further. It is further away from usual tourist routes and almost at the very end of South Island. Nugget Point is an iconic panoramic platform on the Catlins coast with one of the country’s oldest lighthouses perched above the famous rocks named by Captain Cook because they looked like pieces of gold.
