Only 10 minutes driving from central Wellington, Petone is Wellington’s only Historic Shopping Precinct.

We, at the Jackson Street Programme, have put our heads together to create an unique and informative tour for fashion lovers and local enthusiasts alike.

Your tour guide, Frances Hamilton, has a wide range of skills to help you express yourself with confidence – whether it be enhancing your own individual style or with current fashion trends.

She is passionate about New Zealand designed and made clothing and homewares. Her love for people, fabrics, colours and style will be obvious as she guides you through six of Jackson Street’s boutiques.

Throughout the tour you will be given historical information about some of the interesting quirks of Petone and the people that originally settled in this delightful town.

After a morning of feasting your eyes on Jackson Street’s desirable fashion houses and filling your eyes with unique historical stories you will be treated to delicious platters at one of Petone’s most iconic restaurants.
