Time goes fast at a magic place like the Awhitu Lighthouse. By the time I was leaving, the sun was setting down bringing the lighthouse to life again!
Sparkling under the bright sun, this is the Awhitu Lighthouse at the Manukau Harbour Southern Head.
The Lighthouse dates from 1874. It ceased operation in 1986 and it was relocated next to the Manukau Heads Signal Station, which has been on the site since 1865. It has been meticulously rebuilt, using original parts, by volunteers from the local Awhitu community.
