Resting Place of the Spirits - The Lighthouse at Cape Reinga
Northland

Cape Reinga sits on the northernmost tip of the North island of New Zealand and is considered a sacred place in Māori culture as the final place on earth before the spirits travel to their underworld.

Demarcating the Tasmanian sea to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east, the lighthouse still has important maritime function.
