I love art, food and clothes. I live in Raglan, it's my 'happy place'. I am constantly surprised by all the talented artisans living and creating in Raglan. All of them have fascinating stories to share, and all of them are doing the right thing by the earth, people, and the ocean - doing things the 'Raglan way'.
Come with me, meet the people, hear their stories and experience Raglan's special Manaakitanga (hospitality). Meet some wonderful creators in this special place which inspires their creativity.
Raglan is widely recognised as the eco-friendly heart of New Zealand, and a leading example of responsible and sustainable tourism. We encourage our guests to act like locals when in Raglan:
- Bring and use your keep-cup (available if you don't have one).
- Bring a bag, Raglan is plastic bag free.
- Respect our eco-friendly town, leave only footprints and friends.
- Raglan people are warm and welcoming. We encourage generosity, compassion and kindness in all our relationships, we encourage our visitors to behave 'the Raglan way'.
