Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, Snells Beach

#1 of 31 in Trails in Auckland
Wonder at the relationship between the natural world and art at Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, an ever-changing exhibition featuring works from some of New Zealand's finest contemporary artists along a 2 km (1.2 mi) walkway. The sculptures engage with the abundant native plant and birdlife, giving visitors a window into the artists' natural inspirations and an evocative meeting point between the manmade and the wild. All pieces are for sale, and visitors are encouraged to relax after their walk with locally sourced wine and coffee tastings at the main center.
