Join us for a 2-day art adventure to Whangarei!
This small group tour (8 people) starts and ends in Auckland City. Sit back and relax on our scenic journey north, stopping at interesting creative spaces – and great cafes! – along the way before we hit Whangarei for an overnight stay.
The following day, we’ll enjoy a private tour of the fabulous Hundertwasser Art Centre and Wairau Maori Art Gallery where you’ll learn about the artists philosophy and approach to architecture. Ample time will be provided for you to explore the centre and gallery on your own at the conclusion of the tour.
On the return journey to Auckland city, we’ll stop to enjoy views across Gibbs Farm – considered by many to be the finest sculpture park in the world. Many of the huge works installed around the farm can be viewed from the roadside. Your art guide will help you navigate the views.
