Whangarei Sculpture Trail

Discover Whangārei through the heart and creativity of its artists!

Many of these public works are a response from the artists to Whangārei: the place and the people, the history and the environment, and in their own, each unique way is a celebration of the Whangarei District.

Don’t miss the new Camera Obscura sculpture. This interactive sculptural structure, looking at Whangarei’s award-winning Te Matau ā Pohe Bridge and sited on The Hatea Loop walk, uses CCTV technology to connect to the world via the web. Entering the dramatic structure to arrive in a camera obscura room, the viewer experiences the Bridge and its environment in a new way.
