Connells Bay, Waiheke Island day trip – Thursday 27th January 2022

$195.00

A visit to Connells Bay is a real treat not to be missed! Considered one of the finest privately owned sculpture parks in the world, Connells Bay is described by the owners as a ‘gallery without walls’.

Featuring only leading New Zealand contemporary artists and set against a stunning backdrop of lush native bush and the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf.

Join us for a private tour of the property with the owners. They work closely with each artist on the brief to ensure pieces blend in with the natural landscape and pay tribute to the history of the area. So you will learn the backstories and interesting details about each piece as we walk the property together.

Beautifully maintained and managed, this gorgeous property will leave you feeling inspired and encouraged to live life with passion!

After lunch at the property*, we will then visit two leading artists working on Waiheke Island – an internationally recognised artisan goldsmith and a leading Maori carver who has a strong following in France.

*Bring your own or add a gourmet picnic lunch with bottled water and hot beverages for $35 per person.
