Looked at the gallery with the newest purchases AND they are terrible !!!!. I'm assuming our rates are subsidising the exhibition of one person's very narrowly focussed art whim. There is so much great art being produced here in nZ so it's a shame that it's not getting the chance to be shown- instead we have 3rd rate stuff. Stay... More

A lovely place with a welcoming atmosphere - the parkland is stunning, and it is surprisingy little-known by most Aucklanders. The comparison with Osborne House in the UK is a little fanciful, but in its own terms it is a real treat. Foremost in any visit will be the superb café, which has quality written through all its choices. With... More

Very pleasant place to spend a few hours eating & then viewing art while enjoying beautiful views or a stroll in the grounds enjoying the views.

Have visited the beautiful grounds and art centre several times and it is a great place to visit. The displays change often. We saw an amazing sculpture display by Terry Stringer and just recently the Wallace art awards. A wonderful display of high quality art all very different. Cafe is great and there is free parking. Entry by donation/Koha.

Go for lunch, sit in the gardens, wander the gallery then the park - calm and tranquil, interesting and stimulating. Worth a visit.

Have visited the Arts Centre a number of times as the regular changes of exhibitions means there is always something new to see. The other thing that makes it different is that it is mainly one man's collection of what he likes and doesn't like and can be very eclectic. This means it doesn't have the same atmosphere as a...
