What you can expect

Located in the beautiful wine region of Matakana, Sculptureum is a great destination for wine tasting, lunch and experiencing local art. Matakana is a 1.5 hour drive north of Auckland on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Known for its wineries, good food and surrounding beaches, Matakana is popular as both a day trip or short break from Auckland.

One of the top Auckland attractions available for art and wine lovers, the Sculptureum Experience in Matakana has something for everyone. Start off by making your way through 1.1km of classical and reflective gardens in the Garden of Creative Diversity, leading into 6 indoor art galleries. Each spacious art gallery at Sculptureum has a different theme, which is what makes this Matakana activity a unique Auckland art destination. To finish off this creative experience, explore two beautiful sculpture gardens before checking out the eateries and Sculptureum wine available onsite.

With sculpture gardens, artwork and palm trees as a backdrop, you can also enjoy wine and food at Sculptureum in Matakana (additional cost).
