Over Christmas and New Year I had a wonderful holiday to New Zealand (although every holiday to New Zealand is a wonderful holiday). One of the highlights of this trip was a visit to Golden Bay. Takaka is the main town in Golden Bay. It's a remote place, and has a strong history as an artistic and alternative community.
I've already shown you the nearby Farewell Spit, and some of the Panoramas of New Zealand were of the Golden Bay area.
Takaka township has many wonderful murals. The largest is at Takaka Village Green.
|It's big. Really big. Too big for one photo.|
