The Jackson Street Programme’s aim is to promote, preserve, and enhance Jackson Street as a successful heritage, retail and commercial area.

Upcoming Events

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.
