Take rust/rock/sculpture photos at CarlucciLand

Okay, let's refine this a little. The plan is to meet outside Carlucci Land at 2PM Sunday 19th May. If you're late, you'll likely find us wandering around in the grounds. Remember you need $5 to take a look around, or $12 if you want to also play mini-golf (last time I checked).

Afterwards, anyone who is interested can come back up to my place, and have a quiet coffee/tea/beer/wine. BYO alcohol, and how about bringing something sweet to share to eat for afternoon tea? I'll give directions on the day.

If the weather doesn't cooperate, I'll propose another date, and update the meetup that morning.

 

Any questions/ideas, this is the place.

 

Cheers

 

Jim

 

Carlucci Land is an interesting spot. Junk, rust, rock and recycled sculptures are sprinkled over a large area, and there is also an 18-hole mini-golf course on site.

Last time I visited, the mini-golf was $12, and there was a token $5 fee for people who just wanted to take a look around.

The whole thing is situated at the bottom of Happy Valley, around the road from the tip (usually far enough that there isn't any smell) and it's great fun so long as the weather behaves.

Buses to the area aren't very easy to come by in the weekends, so it would be best if we pool together to get there.

It just happens that I live a few blocks away, so my thought was that we could retreat to my place afterwards, and then debrief over a drink and a nibble.

I don't have a particular date in mind. I'd like to see how many folk might be interested first.

    Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. We'll have to do it again on a sunny day. Or for a real challenge, at night. :-)

    The weather forecast's not looking at all good, given that Carlucci Land is entirely outdoors... I'll make a final call in the morning, but it's not looking entirely likely at this point, bugger it!

      Weather report is showing chance of very light showers from 2pm-4pm, although looking over Happy Valley I'm seeing seeing lots of sun and bugger all heavy cloud; If I wasn't busy around then I'd be going.

    This will be my first outing with the group. Would anyone happen to be passing the railway station en route and be able to pick me up? I live up the Kapiti Coast and would need to travel in by train. Weather forecast not too good at this stage. Jacky

    • Barbara D.

      I'm coming down from Karori and can easily swing past the railway station. Yes fingers crossed the weather doesn't spoil this outing. I'm on[masked]

      There is. It's not easy to get to, and the neighbours are apparently not keen, but if you have a decent lens, you can see the front of it from the street without too much trouble.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
