Bean Rock Lighthouse on Dry Land?

In 1985, Auckland’s Bean Rock Lighthouse (pictured below) was indeed taken off its foundations to undergo serious maintenance. What is shown above is an excellent replica of this icon of our harbour, gracing one of the shops in the marine precinct of Beaumont Street. Phoebe Falconer of the NZ Herald’s “Ask Phoebe” fame, has unearthed much interesting detail of this Heritage structure, situated at the end of Kohimarama reef. Read her account.
