M. L. Stedman’s novel, “The Light Between Oceans”, has been made into a movie that will be in cinemas soon. The setting for this novel is at Cape Leeuwin in the far south west corner of Western Australia and we have written about this location in previous blogs.
The lighthouse used as the setting for the movie is Cape Campbell lighthouse on the north east coast of the South Island of New Zealand near Blenheim. Unlike the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse (below) which is open to visitors, the Cape Campbell lighthouse cannot be easily accessed. It can only be seen up close by hikers (or trampers as they are called in New Zealand) at low tide.
