Somes/ Matiu Island Lookout

As a family we went to Somes/ Matiu island in the Wellington harbour. The island has been used for many things from quarantine of both people and animals to internment for foreign nationals at time of war… It has a lighthouse which was built-in 1900 to replace the lighthouse built-in 1866 (images to come) and the remains of an anti-aircraft battery not to mention its a pest free zone so there are no rats or mice or other nasties so it is a safe haven for many of New Zealand’s endangered wildlife.

    • The amusing thing was trying to stop my 4 year old from running ahead into the frame 🙂
