Worth a quick look as you pass by. A lot of rural NZ towns seem to want to have an identifying 'statue' of something relevant to their town's activities, and Taihape is no exception.

This large gum boot made of corrugated tin is very good street art. It’s worth stopping for a photo opportunity.you won’t miss it on the main road.

I am a fan of street art and this is street art on a large scale. Its a great landmark which is worth a photo stop on the way into or out of Taihape.

A good opportunity for taking picture. At the sideway. Loved the display. Easy to spot as it's right on the way through town.

it was moved from it's original location to one besides the main state highway - good idea - why was it ever put where it was originally is beyond me. Anyway, makes for a nice photo opportunity

Great photo opportunity in a pleasant picnic site, Taihape honours the gumboot with Gumboot Day (usually early in March each year) featuring a gumboot throwing competition and many other activities.

Loved spying this giant gumboot as we drove into the country town of Taihape. The rain was pelting down and there was that boot, sitting pretty among the manicured flower beds. This town holds an annual gumboot throwing contest. The competition is taken seriously. Taihape...More

Lovely place to get a photo as it's the icon of taihape . Good picnic spot and there is a car park less than 1 minutes walk.
