The wonderfully eccentric Wind Wand at Puke Ariki Landing was designed by Len Lye – the artist who has put this town on the map in modern times. This 45m-high kooky kinetic sculpture is a truly beloved icon of bendy pole-ness. Look for it all lit up at night.
Procrastinating? Look up the online video of the Wind Wand being lashed by lightening during a storm in September 2017.
