Castlepoint is home to a lighthouse that stands near the top of the northern end of a reef. You can walk across the reef to the lighthouse.

  • Castlepoint - Off the beaten track

    Castlepoint - Off the beaten track

    Castlepoint is located on the east coast of the Wairarapa (North Island) about one hour's drive from Masterton. The Castlepoint Scenic Reserve is probably one of the most photogenic (and windiest) locations in the North Island. Aside from the spectacular views, you may also see the Castlepoint daisy, brachyglottis compactus, found only on the crumbled limestone of the reef.
