What you can expect

On the Waiheke Island Art Walk you’ll experience the best art 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 enjoyed at a very leisurely pace so you can enjoy both the art and the scenery around you. You will come away feeling inspired by what you have seen, the artists you have met and the beauty you have enjoyed while wandering through bush tracks and along local roads.
