Tirau is a small town of approximately 800 people in the Waikato region of the North Island of New Zealand, 50 kilometres southeast of Hamilton. Tirau is primarily a farming town but in recent years has begun to exploit the income that comes from being on a major road.
Among its more well known sights are the information centre shaped like a giant dog and 'the big sheep', a large wool outlet, both made out of corrugated iron. Many of the shops in the town also possess large corrugated iron sculptures and the church has a giant shepherd also made out of corrugated iron.
