Day 85 - Taihape gumboot

Taihape gumboot

If Ohakune is the carrot capital of New Zealand, then Taihape is the gumboot capital of the world. Gumboot Day was first held in 1985 and features the famous gumboot throwing competition. This giant gumboot, made of corrugated iron, is another hilarious kiwiana sculpture for New Zealand travellers to enjoy.

Fred Dagg explains it best: If it weren't for your gumboots, where would you be?
