I think the first building on the left is a community gallery and I was lucky enough to meet the artist setting up who welcomed me warmly and set the scene for our short look around the site. I love the concept of such places and was really glad to make purchases in the volunteer run shop. I took photos... More

An interesting place and good to be able to wander round and meet some of the artists. There are plenty of different arts to see and a shop to buy some New Zealand presents in.

When we went there wasn't that many resident artists and those that were there didn't seem to have the time of day for us - which is odd seeing as they want to sell their stuff. Perhaps a rainy day activity

An art gallery, and then a bunch of different art studios with people making and selling different types of art. Beautiful setting in bush with tuis singing, cool gardens and a... More

The quarry is an awesome attraction that can host events, including weddings with the beautiful waterfall as a stunning backdrop, and sculpture filled gardens. The Yvonne Rust Gallery is a great place to exhibit your art works or view a diverse range of exhibitions throughout the year with wheelchair access and cafe opposite. It is the ideal location to have... More
