Katikati would be a characterless small town - but with murals on every second wall it's an open air museum. Have a stroll around town.

Well worth a wander around the Main Street to see the murals of the early days of Katikati. Beautifully painted on shop walls by local artists.

The murals are really great, and help tell the story of the region and the town. We felt that, while being rather good they did not live up to Sheffield in Tasmania. Perhaps they are still a work in progress.

Having read about these murals, I was very skeptical and thought they would be small and probably a tad tacky. How wrong was I - they really are quite big, very well done, and scattered around the town on the sides of buildings and walls...More

The murals are scattered around town, without a guide map it's difficult to find all them. We unfortunately went there on Christmas Day, visitor centre was not open... we left soon after driving around the area for a bit
