Cameron Street Mall is a highlight of Whangarei's central city. It’s full of surprises. The warmth of the feature paving is complemented by unique aspects including stone walls drawn from Whangarei’s rural surroundings and striking "copper trees".
For those with a sense of history the pedestrian mall area has an 80 metre enchanting bronze storyline. From Whangarei’s geological beginnings, the storyline tells of people and events - each plaque building a sense of Whangarei’s history and a sense of positive future where people from different backgrounds build their lives together.
The area around the Mall is a retail precinct with great restaurants and cafes as well as a wide variety of shopping opportunities. Shoppers can enjoy great coffee and good food in an al fresco setting when the weather suits, and there is undercover shopping and dining in The Strand.
