Friends of Baring Head

Friends of Baring Head are a group of volunteers who are passionate about the history and nature of this iconic landscape on the Pencarrow Coast.  After persuading Greater Wellington Regional Council to buy the land surrounding the lighthouse in 2010 and add it to East Harbour Regional Park, the Friends have pursued an exciting plan to upgrade the lighthouse keeper buildings and old pumping station, and to turn the site into a drawcard for tourists, day-trippers, trampers and those riding the Remutaka Cycle Trail, with interpretation panels and overnight accommodation.  Rotary can help them realise this vision.
