Experience the spirit of the locals. And what a big-hearted spirit it is! A look down the main street of Maungaturoto reveals brand
new gardens, developed and implemented by the community. A new wharf was also constructed as part of sesquicentennial
celebrations — once again, a triumph of community spirit.
Here you’ll find welcoming cafes and eateries — one situated in the grand old bank building designed by architects Mitchell and Mitchell
and opened in 1940— as well as some of New Zealand’s best hot pies.
There’s also a quirky collection of shops to browse, none more wonderfully weird than Dreams, with a pair of giant gumbooted feet
planted upside down atop its roof. Markets are on every 1st Friday of the Month from 3.30pm attracting tourists, visitors, locals and more!
Take a trip through the gorge to the waterfalls, visit historic Batley and scenic Whakapirau, or take in some culture at the renowned Otamatea Repertory Theatre — it’s all happening in this interesting little corner of the Kaipara. credit: www.kaiparalifestyler.co.nz
