An operation is underway today to recover a man’s body down a cliff at Cape Farewell, Tasman. 

A spectacular rugged coastline at Cape Farewell in New Zealand. Steep drop offs, rock formation and panoramic views, this coastal attraction provides visitors a breathtaking experience.

Police received a call yesterday afternoon reporting personal items had been found on a clifftop track.

A drone found the man’s body “some way down the cliff”, police said in a statement today.

Police Search and Rescue and an Alpine Cliff Rescue team are working to recover the body.

Police said the man’s death isn’t connected to the search for missing trampers Dion Reynolds and Jessica O'Connor.

Police said the death will be referred to the Coroner.
