Wander amongst the dramatic works of eminent New Zealand artists on Waiheke Island.
The biennial Sculpture on the Gulf festival celebrates esteemed and emerging New Zealand artists in what could be one of the country’s most scenic sculpture trails.
A 2.5-kilometre walk will take you around the headlands of Waiheke Island, from Church Bay to Matiatia, through a landscape studded with art.
With coastal cliffs, city skylines and the turquoise waters of the Hauraki Gulf to one side and impressive, ambitious, occasionally challenging but often beautiful sculptures to the other, it’s hard to know which way to look.
Take your time, take your camera and soak it all in.
