Photo: Cape Kidnappers Lighthouse New Zealand

Along the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand in Hawkes Bay stands the small lighthouse at Cape Kidnappers which is actually more of a light beacon than a lighthouse due to its size.

Amongst thousands of Australasian Gannets at the Cape Kidnappers colony in Hawkes Bay on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand, stands a lighthouse or light beacon. The lighthouse was constructed in 1963 and the area surrounding the light beacon was named by Captain James Cook in 1769 after the local Maori people made an attempt to kidnap his Tahitian interpreter.The Cape Kidnappers lighthouse or beacon flashes every fifteen seconds with two white flashes that extends for approximately eight nautical miles. The light in the square shaped tower does not have a lantern and the tower stands at about four meters high and about one hundred and twelve meters above sea level.This lighthouse is actually not quite large enough to be considered a real lighthouse but it still helps vessels at sea in their navigation.Visitors are only allowed near the grounds of the lighthouse which are shared with the largest mainland colony of Australasian Gannets in the world. ... continue below the picture...
