Visit to Sculptureum

Needs a location

Hi everyone,

This is something a bit different from what I usually plan and organize. But hey- why not!

On Sunday, let's visit Sculptureum. Located an hour north of Auckland and just outside Matakana is Sculptureum, a world-class tourist attraction. With three sculpture-filled gardens, six art galleries, a vineyard, Rothko restaurant, Freddie's Outdoor Kitchen and The Terrace Lawn Bar, there's something for everyone.

I've checked Google reviews, all very positive and high ratings. Basically they've got 6 gardens filled with various sculptures as well as indoor art galleries.

We can have lunch there at the cafe, if people are interested, I can book a table for us. Alternatively, you could bring lunch with you. But you will need to purchase your ticket and update your RSVP if you can no longer make it.

This will be a leisury day, relaxing with a bit of walking and admiring the sculptures and the art. So everyone is welcome, regardless of your fitness level.

If interested in joining, please purchase your ticket online via this link: https://www.sculptureum.nz/our-shop/buy-tickets/gallery-and-gardens

Please not: It's best to purchase your ticket online as it's cheaper, you would be saving $13 based on the info on their website.

Once you've purchased your ticket online, could you post a comment saying you've got the ticket so I know how many people are coming.

If you require a ride, I suggest $20 for petrol contribution. This must be paid to your driver before the start of the event.

Thanks and see you on Sunday :)
