New Zealand - Castlepoint


In this drone video by Leni Sediva, you'll get a bird's eye view of the tallest lighthouse in New Zealand.  It's Castle Point Lighthouse, and it's located in the seaside town of Castlepoint in the Wellington region near the southern tip of the North Island.  Built in 1913, the lighthouse stands 52 meters tall (about 180 ft.).  It's one of only two rotating beam lighthouses left in the country.  The lighthouse sits at the tip of a long, narrow reef.  Still operational, the lighthouse has been automated since 1988.
