Cape Reinga

This lighthouse was the ultimate destination of our holiday, although we had just as much fun 'getting there' as arriving.

The view at Cape Reinga is absolutely breathtaking.




The waves in the middle of nowhere are caused from the Pacific Ocean meeting the Tasman Sea.


And the sacred history for the Maori makes the whole place quite interesting. This link gives you some historical information.
