A last minute getaway, to Waiheke Island off the coast of Auckland, happily coincided with the biennial art event headland Sculpture on the Gulf.
Having been a regular visitor to Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney and Perth, I was excited to see the New Zealand equivalent. After an indulgent day of eating and drinking at one of Waiheke’s many wineries, an evening stroll along the stunning coastline admiring these wonderful works of art was the perfect end to a beautiful day.
These are just some of the sculptures, hSGOTG is on until February 19, so if you happen to be in or around Auckland it is definitely worth jumping on the ferry and taking the short trip across the gulf to see this awesome event for yourself.
