Art exhibitions in the wondefull gallery. The art and craft shop is a great place to shop for original work from local artists, classes and workshops to develop your skills in all sorts of mediums adn events like the Festival of Lights and Summer Do, And there's a cafe, walks and volunteering opportunities................

This was a rather odd place. We saw two people there, one was washing his clothes with a hose pipe, the other was a pleasant lady in the gift shop. Apart from these two it appeared totally deserted, except for very loud music coming from one of the buildings. Everything is very tired and in need of a tidy up,... More

The grounds are filled with sculptures and the whole place feels like an artists wonderland. Just being there conjures up creative energy. A must see in Whangarei. There's also a gallery and...

Had expected a little gem, but the gem had become quite dull. It is in dire need of some TLC, cleaning up and a bit of investment for upgrade.

Nothing to see here. Everything is in poor condition. Only 2 shops open and welcoming. One shop keeper literally closed the door in our faces as we were approaching. Don't know what they are trying to accomplish here but don't waste your time.

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.

Artists come in all shapes and forms with and within different mediums. I'm sure you will find some form that will pique your interest. Sculpture, Painting, Music, Photography, Glass, writing, you name it, it is here. If you seek information and informative conversation about your medium of choice then the various resident and visiting artists are only to happy to... More
