Tirau

You can’t miss Tirau – just look for the large corrugated iron buildings constructed to look like a sheep and a dog. This town is a little quirky!

Corrugated iron is a classic New Zealand building material, but it can also be a creative medium. In Tirau, the artful side of corrugated iron is explored.

Large buildings have been constructed to resemble a dog and a sheep. Sculptures include a pukeko, a praying mantis and a cow pushing a shopping trolley. It all makes for an entertaining rest stop.

There are also number of charming cafés, boutique gift shops and galleries and antique shops for browsing.
