The brainchild of Colin Hughes, these picturesque tiles were designed and created by a team of 12 artisans from the Whakatane Society of Arts and Crafts and completed in 2007. Each tile is an independent work of art, featuring local flora and fauna, and as a whole it forms a continuous mural. There are four distinct sections, starting from the lower steps depicting underwater life, the beach, wetland forest, the sky and then space.
Access available from Canning Place or Hillcrest Road, Whakatane.
