The lighthouse is located on the most easterly point of mainland New Zealand. The historic East Cape lighthouse stands 154 metres above sea level and is accessed by a walking track with 700 steps.
The very narrow gravel road to the historic East Cape lighthouse is not suitable for wide vehicles or motorhomes due to the lack of passing lanes and the road’s width. The road dips and swerves around the coastline and, in places it is a pitted, uneven surface.
The 22 km road is frequented by wild horses, wild pigs and views of the occasional farms nestled against the hillsides for protection from the incessant prevailing winds. The stunted bent trees definitely indicate which way the wind is blowing.
