Patrick Street Walking Tour

Patrick Street Walking Tour

Join local residents for a walk down Petone’s historic Patrick St, the only remaining street largely developed under the 1906 Worker’s Dwelling Act, and a protected heritage area.

Hear about the street’s early development, its architects, and its social history as well as some of the current challenges facing those trying to ensure its protection.

Patrick Street is part of the Heretaunga Settlement Workers’ Dwellings Historic Area, which is a recognised area on the New Zealand Heritage List. It consists of an imaginative mix of architectural styles that make up New Zealand’s first state housing experiment, and possibly the world’s first state housing scheme.

Maximum tour size: 20 people.


Booking is required. Email petonehistories@gmail.com to book.

Location: Meet at the corner of Patrick Street and Jackson Street.

Duration: Up to one and a half hours.
