The Sculpture Walk

The 2km coastal walk is connected by various walkways and stairs. The walk takes approximately 1.5 to 2.5 hours to enjoy; meander along, take in the magnificent views and, of course, the star of the show: the sculptures!

The small sculpture exhibition is easily accessible and will be showcased at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery in Oneroa.

Our artists have smaller marquettes inspired by their work on the walkway will available for viewing and sale. The event footprint will also include sculpture works in the Artworks precinct giving you a chance to explore more of Oneroa Village and Waiheke Island. 

The track is a coastal walkway and is unsealed and fairly narrow with steps in some places. It is easy to overestimate fitness levels, particularly if you are not used to track walking and hills. Waiheke is hilly and very steep in places.

Accessibility:  There is minimal wheelchair and pram access along the full length of the sculpture walk. 

Seating and Shade:  Seating and shade along the walkway is limited. 

Water: Please ensure you bring plenty of drinking water and your own water bottle as the walkway is steep in places and can get very hot. Free water filling stations will be located at the start and end of the walkway as well as the Information Tent located at Matiatia. All our volunteers carry spare water with them in case of emergency.

Waste: SOTG is a waste free event. Please ensure that whatever you bring on the walk goes home with you – thank you!

The walkway is significantly busier and more crowded on Saturdays and Sundays than it is during the week. If you want to miss the crowds we recommend visiting mid-week.
