A view of the Harbour and the Wharf facilities at the foot of Cook Street can be seen in the background.What about Havelock’s port facilities? How then did these develop? In that first year (1864) of gold fever Havelock was proclaimed a customs entry port and gained a customs house. All this allowed overseas vessels to arrive direct but of course they had nowhere to berth in the tidal water. Instead they stood off at Cullen’s Point.
