How do you find Slope Point Backpackers?

Put simply, we are located on the no exit road to Slope Point, the southern most point of the South Island. We are the first house you come to driving along Slope Point Road. Located between Curio Bay and Waipapa Point, we are on the coastal scenic route. Please be careful if you use a navigation system. They often tell you that “you are here” when you still have a short distance to drive.

If you want to know travel times from towns. I Have calculated the approximate travel times if you drive directly to us. They are as follows:

Invercargill - 50 minutes
Fortrose - 20 minutes
Tokanui - 10 minutes
Curio Bay - 10 minutes
Owaka - 1 hour
Balclutha - 1 ½ hours
Dunedin - 2 ½ hours

As you can probably see we are at the start of the Southern end of the Catlin’s. It is a great place to start your day exploring the Catlin’s. Also it is a great place to finish your adventure through the Catlin’s so you can make the most of your time that you can spend here. “The getaway” is the southernmost accommodation offered in the South Island. Wake up with the Catlin’s at your cabin door and a day of adventure awaits.

Slope Point Backpackers is only minutes away from forest walks, the Haldane Estuary, Slope Point, Curio Bay, Waipapa Point and walks along the rugged Catlin’s coast. It’s all here ready to be explored.
