Experience The Magic of Raglan

Meet the local faces behind all things creative in Raglan

I'm Amanda, a Raglan local, come me me to explore Raglan.

Raglan is a west coast beach town with a laid-back artsy surfy vibe. It's home to a lot of talented people, all with interesting stories to tell. Explore with a local - whether you're a foodie, looking for your next piece of art, or something interesting to wear. 

Bespoke tours hosted by Amanda - known locally as 'The Hostess with the Mostest' are available on request for from one to 10 people. They are suitable for individuals, visitors, locals, a day out with friends, conference or corporate groups.

I would be very happy to design an itinerary to suit your interests and timeframe. We can cater for groups up to 40 people. You can add a night in Raglan, activities, meeting room, a meeting planner, and other activities.

All our artisans are doing the right thing by the earth, people, and the ocean.
