Petone is a happening place at all times, but especially in the summer and autumn when the weather is warmer and more settled. Families and friends drift between the beachfront Esplanade and Jackson Street … moving from sunshine, sea and sand to a world of coffee, bars, shopping and restaurants.

Take a tour of Petone’s Historic sites from the Petone Settlers Museum to the Iona Memorial Cross and many places in between. Listen or read about each of the stops to discover the rich history of Petone. Connect to Jackson Street’s free WIFI.
