Cape Brett is a promontory on the northern North Island coast in New Zealand.[1] Located at the end of the Cape Brett Peninsula, the head extends north into the Pacific Ocean at the eastern end of the Bay of Islands.

A lighthouse stands at the end of the peninsula, which rises to 360 metres at its northern end. A noted landmark, the natural arch ('Hole in the Rock') of Piercy Island, lies two kilometres off the cape.
