"You really must go to Moko." Our host at Tairua said so on many more than one occasion. So, on our last full day we made the effort. Jenny (from Colonial Homestay) hit the nail on the head. It was worthwhile.
This wonderful eclectic mix of art almost seems out of place in this dead end setting but it has become almost as large an attraction as Hot Water Beach itself, which only seems appropriate for those who have read my previous tip!
There's just such a fine range with vibrant colours, individualistic designs and many manifestations of different media.
So, to coin a phrase, if you go to Hot Water Beach, "You really must go to Moko".
I loved the sign in pic 5 too by the way, very rustic.

Address: Hot Water Beach
Directions: Trust me, if you're there, you can't miss it unless you guide dog is having an off day.
