Katikati – The Mural Town

Katikati - The Mural Town

‘Catty-cat,’ as it is known to the locals, has turned itself into a big open-air art gallery. Many of the town’s buildings are decorated with murals; many focus on its history as an Irish settlement.

One of the town’s best loved art works is Barry the ‘Kiwi bloke,’ a life-like bronze figure reading a newspaper on a seat near the Katikati Information Centre. For guides to Katikati’s murals and sights, pick up brochures from the Katikati Information Centre, or for more information visit www.katikati.org.nz
