The concrete tower on Dog island is New Zealand’s tallest lighthouse.
Being in the Foveaux strait is also attracts the wind and the long white cloud. Our brave and dedicated lighthouse crew battled the elements for 3 weeks to complete the technical and much needed maintenance. The cast iron gutter and handrail got its first ever full strip back and sand blast.
The full tower got a glossy top coat and we also installed a new lightning rod and attractor as multiple strikes had damaged the existing one.
The lighthouse is ready for another 15 years of maritime safety in the deep south.
