Cuvier Island

Cuvier Island

Cuvier Island, also known as Repanga, is a volcanic outcrop lying east of the Coromandel Peninsula and between Great Barrier Island (Aotea Island) and the Mercury Islands (Iles d’Haussez). The island has had a lighthouse since 1889; it is the most distant of New Zealand’s offshore lighthouses. The light was automated in 1982, and now runs on solar power.
