Akaroa Lighthouse and Garden of Tane
Akaroa's landmark lighthouse was moved to its present location in 1980, but was erected a hundred years earlier at Akaroa Heads (which is now served by an automated light). Nearby, the Garden of Tane is worth a few minutes or a few hours spent wandering in the generous shade of native plants and mature European trees. Paths meander through the park and lead to several historic cemeteries with views of the Banks Peninsula.
