Jane & Mario Downes ‘Stop the Clock’ 2015
headland Sculpture on the Gulf on Waiheke from Friday 27 January to Sunday 19 February 2017.
The exhibition walkway provides an enjoyable experience for all our visitors. The two kilometre walk takes approximately 1.5 to 2.5 hours to enjoy, meander along, take in the magnificent views and, of course, the star of the show; the sculptures!
Shuttle buses leave the Pavilion every 15-20 minutes, from 9.10am – 6pm daily, to take visitors to the start of the walkway at the end of Nick Johnstone Drive. This costs $5 for adults, $3 for children.
The walkway showcases 34 sculptures along the track set in the magnificent scenery of the Waiheke headland.
The track is a coastal walkway and is unsealed with steps in some places. People of all ages, with moderate fitness, will enjoy the walk.
headland Sculpture on the Gulf is a great day out for the whole family.
As part of our commitment to ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable time, we ask that you follow the directions and walk from the top of the track down into Matiatia. There will be qualified first-aid volunteers along the way and water stations. If you experience any difficulty please contact our Event Operations Manager on 021 995 486 or get a volunteer to radio through to the Visitor Services Control Hub. The track can be steep and narrow in parts.
Pit Stop at the Look Out
The Look Out site is located where the hSOTG walkway meets Nick Johnstone Drive. For this year’s event, the Look Out is marked by the striking ‘Manuesina’ (White Bird and White Angel) sculpture by 2017 artist Semisi Fetokai Potauainehere.
On the busy weekends there is a ‘pop up’ ice cream van with just the right goodies to fuel the rest of your walk.
Grab a cold drink and take in some of the spectacular views before heading off to complete the remainder of the walkway and a much earned rest at the headland Pavilion.
headland Sculpture on the Gulf 2017 is a Zero Waste event with the support of the Waiheke Resources Trust
