Katikati – Mural Capital of New Zealand

Saturday 1st June to Monday 3rd June 2019

Katikati is proud to be hosting the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Weekend School on behalf of  the Waikato Bay of Plenty Region of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, New Zealand Branch.

Katikati is New Zealand’s largest open air art gallery and is located in the Bay of Plenty, in the North Island of New Zealand, and is situated on State Highway 2, between the city of Tauranga in the south and the township of Waihi in the north.

Katikati was established in 1875 by George Vesey Stewart, and was the largest Ulster Settlement in New Zealand. Hence we use the yellow Ulster tartan.

Katikati enjoys an agreeable temperate climate and is a major Kiwifruit and Avocado growing area.
