The oldest operating lighthouse in New Zealand, the Tiritiri lighthouse was first lit on New Year’s Day in 1865. The lighthouse reserve site itself is even older – set aside within months of the signing the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi. The lighthouse makes for an incredible photo opportunity. You can even climb the Signal Tower for sweeping views across to the Coromandel Peninsula.
