Raglan might be a small town, but we have a lot going on!
We’re famous for surfing, but also the art scene and alternative living, great fishing and a sense of community.
Come check out our funky cafes, individualist shops (no chain stores), 7 art galleries, amazing environment centre, community garden, creative markets and more.
