Re-visiting the sculpture trail after 9 years felt was rather tired. OK new exhibits but certain area showed their age - even taking into consideration the recent inclement weather. Seemd to have lost the edge and the excitement.

Fabulous food reasonably priced, a good wine list and all set around a pond and sculpture garden. Quite lovely and we all enjoyed it.

A great selection of sculpture positioned in lush natural surroundings. Umbrellas are available which we used to stay semi dry on a particularly wet day. Wonderfully curated and inspiring work.

The walk was very enjoyable and the sculptures interesting. Kauri trees are beautiful and the cafe is well sited and nice open atmosphere.

It had been a few years since we had visited the Sculpture trail. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience as did our 13 year old grandson.

I agree with the above answer, but just to add that you can walk it quickly at your own pace, and it's a lovely walk but certainly you won't get as much pleasure if you are rushing through it. An hour should be fine.
