A Man’s Daughter Tragically Drowned In 1870. What He Did For Her Still Stands Today… And It’s AWESOME.


After tragically losing his daughter at a young age, a father decided to give her one final gift. John Cargill, son of Captain William Cargill, lost his youngest to a rip tide in the 1870s. She drowned and, understandably, it broke his heart.

So, he used his grief and chipped away at a sandstone coastline south of Dunedin, New Zealand. He hand-carved a passage through the thick stone. The resulting tunnel was a path to a private beautiful beach… a touching tribute to his lost daughter.

The Tunnel Beach of Dunedin is a must-see stop if you’re in the area (click here for more information and its address). It’s full of natural beauty. Not only that, but when you see it, you’ll know one grieving father just wanted to give his daughter something to smile about even though she was gone.
