Sitting on the edge of Caroline Bay but having been moved twice from its original position Blackett's Lighthouse is distinguished by being made of timber.

It is a survivor from the major programme of lighthouse construction around New Zealand's shores during the 1860s, 1870s and early 1880s, reminding us that shipping and coastal transport an important role in New Zealand's the social and economic development.
