Done a few sculpture trails, this one was pleasant with a good walk and map. Sculptures were interesting but some were missing (sold) others not so great. Overall price cheap enough for a look!

After an excellent meal at the restaurant with wines from the estate, the art on the trail is not only a relaxing walk but a satisfying culture experience.

A nice way to spend a few hours. The art work is very diverse and changing. You can buy it too. There is also a restaurant to eat good food in a nice setting.

Nice native bush walk with lovely bird calls and music in the trees, lovely Kauri. i enjoyed some of the sculptures but I felt some bit dated. Not the most inspirational sculpture walk i've ever been on.
