“The Pencarrow Lighthouse was New Zealand's first permanent lighthouse and was run by New Zealand's only woman lighthouse-keeper, Mary Jane Bennett.”

The Pencarrow Lighthouse was New Zealand's first permanent lighthouse and was run by New Zealand's only woman lighthouse-keeper, Mary Jane Bennett. The cast iron tower was made in England and then erected on Pencarrow Head, at the entrance to Wellington Harbour in 1859.

Included within Wellington's Eastern Harbour Regional Park. School group visits by coach can be arranged, or groups can walk to the lighthouse from the Eastbourne road-end (8km walk). Coach trips and/or access to the interior must be arranged in advance.

Eastbourne is located 40 minutes drive from downtown Wellington or 30 minutes aboard the East By West Ferry.
