The Bluff township has a Community Board to help promote and enhance the area for residents and visitors alike. Examples include the Bluff redevelopment project (opened in December 2008) and the Bluff Community Board Bursary.
The Council’s Bluff Service Centre at 16 Gore Street deals with Council payments as well as Lotto, Post Shop and library services. The Bluff Community Board meetings are held at the Municipal Chamber.
The 2013 Census put Bluff’s population at 1791.
Bluff has its own events calendar which highlights local events ranging from Sea Scout meetings and weight loss groups to international events such as the Bluff Oyster and Food Festival and the Bluff Hill Climb section of the Burt Munro Challenge. The latest version is available here:

Sign of the times
The old sign, which was a little the worse for wear, had to be replaced after it was discovered some of the blades were not correctly positioned. It was also an opportunity to update the sign by adding a blade pointing to Invercargill’s sister city Suqian, China.
The new sign was made by local business Bluff Engineering.
