Design your own custom walking tours of the city centre

In a New Zealand first, Pā Rongorongo lets visitors and Aucklanders build a walking or cycling tour that is unique to their own interests.

This custom map can be sent as a text message link to their mobile phone or, in future, printed out on site.

Incorporating a range of categories such as arts and culture, cycleways, walking routes, heritage spaces, urban forests and Māori sites of significance, the interactive citizen’s information hub, Pā Rongorongo, is located in Griffiths Gardens, the inner-city backyard for residents, workers and visitors.

Constructed of two shipping containers with a special surface that glows in different colours, Pā Rongorongo features an interactive digital wall that will be programmed by local artists.
