Seasoned and budding artists from NZ and overseas live, work, and exhibit here, in unique handcrafted buildings. Family friendly, with an international feel! You can look and purchase all year round. Also people of all ages (including children) learn from experienced local and international artists in the acclaimed summer arts schools - printmaking, sculpture, photography etc. Often events are held...

Visited the region and popped in to this venue. Take the time to view the gallery. There is a brief history displayed that make you feel an attachment to the arts centre. We visited a little later in the afternoon so the coffe shop was closed. The shop was open and the staff were very welcoming. Enjoyable visit.

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

I love the Quarry Arts Centre. It's such a beautiful place with great art classes for kids and adults. We've taken many classes there and really enjoyed them. 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
