Google has a satellite map
Tuaheni Point, is situated on the east coast of the North Island, north of Gisborne.
Established in 1905, Tuaheni Point was one of the first fully automated lights in New Zealand. The original lighthouse was wooden but was burnt down during the first year. The next tower, constructed of cast iron lasted until erosion forced yet another tower to be built. The 3rd tower was constructed in 1911 at the water edge on solid rock and can still be seen today, however this light was also replaced with another on the headland. 19
