There have been few changes to the Tower since it was erected on a prominent East Coast cliff. Observed as resembling a medieval stonghold or as an impressive sight by many ships sailing towards Wellington from America or Panama.

It is also located near a popular beach for holiday makers.

The light shines from a 23 metre high tower and is 52 metres above sea level. The light can be seen from 26 nautical miles (48 kilometres).
