Pohutukawa (po-hu-tu-ka-wa) opened its doors in December 2004, situated downtown Mount Maunganui in the heart of “The Mount”. Within walking distance to the bustling surf beach “Main Beach” and the quieter harbour “Pilot Bay”, the popular downtown shopping area sits right in the middle of a peninsula with the iconic Mount Maunganui (Mauao) on the end of the spit. Boasting sidewalk cafes and restaurants, specialist boutique style shops and galleries it is a holiday haven for international and national tourists alike.
At Pohutukawa we love New Zealand and all it has to offer, our gallery has a distinct pacific/New Zealand flavour and ambience with timber boardwalks and stone pebble floors which form the shaped of the koru. We have a fabulous selection of quality and affordable New Zealand art, for the garden and home, special gifts and souvenirs, amazing beaded jewellery, all carefully created and crafted by local and national artists, exhibitions by local up and coming artists which change monthly. Our store is equally enjoyed by New Zealanders and tourists alike.
