Did the 2hour guided tour (& video) this week. Staff in the centre and the tour guides were very passionate about the Art Deco topic- and pointed out a number of classic 1930’s buildings. Give it a try.More

The town is a unique survivor of the Art Deco style following the earthquake in the 1930’s several looks of houses shops and cafes make for an unusual town centre, it is a major tourist destination o the North Island.
