Come and enjoy a relaxed art and garden experience.
Stroll along with a gentle 1 km sculpture & garden trail set in a tranquil and inspirational rural oasis, located at award-winning Kaipara Coast Plant Centre. Listen to the birds as you enjoy the gardens and over 60 selected sculptures by leading New Zealand artists.
The Sculpture Trail is a large outdoor art gallery where sculptures are discovered while strolling through the gardens, the bush track and past the ponds.
The exhibition is changed every 12 months.
David Bayly has owned and operated Kaipara Coast Plant Centre from this site since 1988 and it has been his vision for many years to create a Sculpture Garden in the secluded valley next to the Plant Centre. His aim was to create a place where visitors to the gardens can stroll along the sculpture trail and find inspiration for selecting sculptures and plants to enhance their gardens and property while enjoying great views of the rural setting.
Allow 1 ½ hours to enjoy the walk fully and take in all the sculptures.
Options of 30 min to 90 min workshops on a variety of gardening topics run by Kaipara Coast Owner & Horticulturist David Bayly.
Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens make a great outing for Preschools, Primary Schools and Colleges.
