More photo information

Situated on the Wairarapa Coast, east of Masterton, Castle Point Light was first lit in 1913.

There have been few changes to the Lighthouse Tower since it was erected on a prominent East Coast cliff. Observed as resembling a medieval stonghold or as an impressive sight by many ships sailing towards Wellington from America or Panama.

It is also located near a popular beach for holiday makers on the North island of New Zealand

The Castle Point Lighthouse light shines from a 23 metre high tower and is 52 metres above sea level. The light can be seen from 26 nautical miles (48 kilometres).
