Eglington Bluff

Coordinates: -45.084430, 167.981630

The Milford Road is squeezed between a bluff and the Eglington River at this point. This was the first major difficulty encountered by the road building crew, they lost a truck in the river before blasting the cliff to make a safe road margin.

There is a roadside stop immediately before and another after the bluff, the second has better access and provides a better viewpoint up the valley. The light is probably most favourable early in the morning and after mid day.

Well worth a stop.
