Matakana and Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens

Our Apologies for getting the two sculpture gardens mixed up, 

Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens are a tranquil, peaceful oasis set in gardens on a rural property looking out to the Kaipara Harbour. It features selected contemporary sculptures, created by established and emerging New Zealand artists.

David Bayly has owned and operated Kaipara Coast Plant Centre from this site since 1988 and it has been his vision for many years to create a Sculpture Garden in the secluded valley next to the Plant Centre.

His aim was to create a place where visitors to the gardens can stroll along the sculpture trail and find inspiration for selecting sculptures and plants to enhance their gardens and property while enjoying great views of the rural setting.

The Sculpture Trail is a large outdoor Art Gallery where sculptures are discovered while strolling through the gardens, the bush track and past the ponds.

Sculptures are for sale and the display changes completely with the new exhibition opening in November each year to give you a fresh experience each time you come.
