Lighthouse of the Week, February 21-27, 2016: Nugget Point, New Zealand

I've looked for lighthouses from New Zealand before, and given that it's an island with a lot of coast, it has quite a few.  So when I went back to look again, I found this gem, Nugget Point.  It's a very spectacular setting.  Not a lot of views from the sea, however.

A bit about it from the Lighthouse Directory:

"1870. Active; focal plane 76 m (250 ft); white light, 2 s on, 2 s off, 2 s on, 6 s off. 9.5 m (31 ft) round cylindrical stone tower with lantern and gallery, attached to 1-story equipment building."

Here's a map of where it's situated on the southern South Island:

And pictures of it, of course:
