History of Eat Streat

About a decade ago, the Rotorua Lakes Council had put forth a proposal of creating a dining hub within the inner city. Back then, the lake end of Tutanekai Street was no more than just that - a street.

Three years later, the chosen design was honored with the Exterior Innovation and Infrastructure Award. At present, Jason Wright is the chairman of this wonderful place, and Eat Streat has incessantly developed into something better than what it used to be previously, with a possible prospect of growth in the years to come.
