Hairy Maclary

In the heart of our city, set on the beautiful Tauranga Waterfront you will find the famous Hairy Maclary sculptures. The bronze sculptures of Hairy and his eight furry friends were created by Brigitte Wuest. You'll find Scarface Claw, Slinky Malinki, Hercules Morse, Muffin McLay, Bottomley Potts, Schnitzel von Krumm, Bitzer Maloney and Zachary Quack, and a relaxing seating area set under the magnolia trees where you can enjoy watching people of all ages enjoy interacting with the characters from Dame Lynley Dodd's much loved children's book.

These larger-than-life bronze statues have brought the characters from Hairy Maclary to life, and created a lasting legacy for generations to enjoy. The sculptures are a fantastic addition to the family activities on Tauranga’s waterfront.
