Umhlanga Rocks is a well known South African tourist destination. Anyone who’s been there would most certainly recognise the whalebone pier and lighthouse situated on the beach. Paul Doran recreated these iconic landscapes in an official MOC commissioned by The Certified LEGO Store for their Gateway branch.
