As landmarks go this may be a bit leftfield. The Groynes on St Clair beach are regarded as a landmark and are widely photograph by locals and visitors alike.
Their history stems from the erosion that takes place on the beach and the sand dunes on the exposed east coast of Otago, in New Zealand.
Erosion is a long-term ongoing concern, as evidenced by attempts at beach protecting begun in 1904 which saw the addition of sturdy wooden piles and windbreaks to the beach, the last surviving sets of wooden posts from these efforts are a landmark of St Clair Beach, often seen as being the dividing line between St Clair and Middle Beaches.
