Waiheke Island has been known as an island that supports a lively creative community for many years now and has a wonderful range of artists who make their home here.
On the Waiheke Island Art Walk you’ll experience the best of what Waiheke has to offer – visiting galleries, sculpture parks, artist studios and lunching at a spectacular property where one of the island’s many artists lives and works.
Our Art Walk takes approximately five hours, and is done at a very leisurely pace so you can enjoy both the art and the scenery around you. By being surrounded by such creativity and the beauty of nature, you will come away feeling inspired by what you have seen, the artists you have met and the beauty and views you have enjoyed while wandering through bush tracks and local roads.
