Giant Dog Tirau

New Zealand isn’t too famous for the quirky things you might come across whilst driving through towns and villages. Buildings such as this (while not common) must come as quite a shock to visitors. Shaped like a giant white dog, this building is the local information centre. It is on the main highway which runs through the town of Tirau. I have driven through here a couple of times on my way between Auckland and Rotorua. On my last drive through I knew I had to stop the car for a few photographs. There are a few different buildings in Tirau made out of corrugated iron.
