February 2021 New Zealand Lighthouse Stamp

On 3 Feb 2021 New Zealand Post issued a set of 9 stamps in a series named “Holiday at Home” to promote domestic tourism. Each of the stamps features a different area of New Zealand and one of them shows a stylized view of Castlepoint L/H on the Wairarapa coast. This lighthouse was built in 1913 on the southeast coast of New Zealand’s North Island near the town of the same name.
