Limited to 20
Starting at Sandspit Holiday Park with a talk by the current owners about its rich history, we will follow the beautiful coast line shared with Blue Herons, Oyster Catchers and other coastal birds and head to the Sculpture Park via Whisper Cove.
We view two wonderful, seldom seen site-specific large sculptures by Virginia King.
One is an earth sculpture Koru formed by a series of islands in spiral form emerging from a lake.
80 meters in diameter this major work appears like a huge fossil lying on the hillside and is clearly seen on Google Earth. We will stop here to learn about how it was designed and constructed.
The second is Raupo Rattler, a 16 metre long sinuous percussive bridge crossing a wetland.
A short walk to the Brick Bay Sculpture Park where we will enjoy a sumptuous platter lunch, a glass of some of the area’s best wine at the “glass house” winery followed by time to wander through the expansive and unique Sculpture Park.
On the way home we enter private property and continue across farmland, enjoying expansive, fantastic views of Kawau Bay and the Hauraki Gulf and will follow the scenic bush tracks over the hill back to Sandspit.
