The Third Eye

The Third Eye, Tuataras brew pub, was always a weird one. Being cut off from the obvious front door by SH1 it felt both close and far away.

Inside was fantastic, especially the upstairs event venue, check out the jazz photos I took one gig.

The outstanding mural, now painted over, was seen by everyone leaving Wellington depicting the 250 million year old Tuatara reptile and, of course, its famous "third eye"

They are also unusual in having a pronounced photoreceptive eye, the third eye, which is thought to be involved in setting circadian and seasonal cycles.
