Notes:

Slated for demolition, the lighthouse was saved instead as an observation tower.

Later abandoned, it was in very poor condition until Heritage Hokitika restored it in 1999.

The replica lantern was added in 2002, and the group hopes to reactivate the light as a private aid to navigation in the future.
