  • Very impressed with the centre. I bought a rare scrimshaw(fossilized walrus tooth). Others available.My wife bought a stunning necklace in the same shop. We chatted with the artist and wandered among the other rustic studios at will. Unique location, great use of a disused site, close to town. Offers a basic cafĂ© and summer school art classes for those willing to open their creative side. One of the highlights in our 10 week tour of NZ.
  • Artistic haven and creative mecca a minute's walk from the city centre, but surrounded in native bush. Peaceful, tranquil, glorious coffee and a waterfall to boot. Stunning artworks and creations for sale. Don't miss it!
  • Interesting flower gardens
  • What a cool place! so close to Whangarei city central yet you feel like you're miles away. You can wander around and visit the artists in their studios, browse the shop and gallery and take a bush walk up the the pa Site at Coronation Reserve.
  • A wonderful place to visit for it's arts and crafts - meet the artists! Or, just a place "to be". Full of bird song and native bush. A must to visit.
