This is the only place you will find locally produced pencil drawings of local attractions-some have been hand painted. Very reasonably priced. Something worth taking away a a warm memento of this slice of history. Several sizes to choose from

This was one of the best artwork shop we've been to. Art lovers will fall for the amazing and impressive artworks. If only we had enough cash then we would have bought one.

We had a good look around this art and souvenir shop. Prices varied from small to great, so there was a good selection of NZ art and souvenirs. The owner was friendly and gave good service.
