Glad we visited here as fab place to wander around for a wee while. Not all the containers are occupied now but there are enough shops and food places to explore. It was great to see how places like this came about after the earthquake.

Beautiful area, even with the obvious devastation that occurred in 2011. The shops were cute, friendly staff and a good array of items. Was so lovely and colourful, which really brought a lot of life to the area. We spent hours just walking around the...More
