Sculpture in the Gardens forms a 2km sculpture trail through Auckland Botanic Gardens.

Designed to entice visitors further into the gardens, the trail winds through the garden collections, across the central lawn and back up to Huakaiwaka, the award-winning Auckland Botanic Gardens visitor centre.

Twenty outdoor sculptures form the exhibition – an inspiring mix of well established and emerging artists from across New Zealand.

There's also an indoor gallery featuring works from over 60 artists, guided walks on Sunday mornings, and drop-in activities offer ways for visitors to connect with the art.

Mobility options are provided for the trail.
