Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

Although there's a sign asking hikers to respect the private land that the track to the East Cape Lighthouse crosses, the start of the track is very poorly marked. Once you do find it, another sign warning that it's a steep climb turns away some people, we found. Cathy stayed in the campervan while I made the trek up the 755 steps (yes, I counted them on the way down).
