this is a fantastic attraction. There is something for everyone. I do not consider myself at all arty but the trail which mostly winds through native bush with a stand of Kauri is worthwhile on its own. The sculptures are an added bonus. They have...More

This Trail is part of a winery. Tickets for the sculpture trail have to be purchased at the restaurant, the sculptures are placed along the trail. Winery is heavily promoted.

It was a stunning walk through beautiful bush which I highly enjoyed and would recommend. However, I was disappointed with the art as it just wasn't me and mostly looked out of place with the location.

After a delicious lunch at the restaurant we enjoyed an hour and a half walking around the ponds and through the bush taking in over 60 sculptures. The audio pieces were delightful too
