Stephens Island Lighthouse Model
This hand-painted model depicts the Stephens Island Lighthouse. This lighthouse is located in the Cook Strait, at the top of the South Island.
The Stephens Island Lighthouse was built at the highest elevation above sea level compared to the rest of lighthouses in New Zealand.
The original light was also the most powerful when it was first lit in 1894. At a total cost of £9,349, the lighthouse cost twice that of many other lights in New Zealand!
This model is a perfect gift for a lighthouse fanatic, nautical enthusiast or hobbyist!
Please note: This product is not suitable for fish tanks as it is hand-painted and the paint will come off in the water.
This product is also available for purchase in store at Wellington Museum.
