The Sculpture Walk

What to expect

Various walkways and stairs connect the 2km coastal walk. The walk takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours to enjoy; meander along, take in the magnificent views and, of course, the stars of the show: the sculptures!

The track is a coastal walkway and is unsealed and relatively narrow, with steps in some places. It is easy to overestimate fitness levels, mainly if you are not used to walking hills. Waiheke is hilly and very steep in some areas. There is minimal wheelchair and pram access along the entire length of the sculpture walk. Seating and shade along the walkway are also minimal.

Best times to visit

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.

Sculpture Shuttle Buses

Catch the sculpture shuttle bus to the start of the walkway from the information tent located at Matiatia, a short walk from the ferry terminal. Once you’ve completed the sculpture walk, shuttle buses collect visitors from the end of the walkway and return to Matiatia via the Waiheke Community Art Gallery / Oneroa.

Shuttle bus tickets $5pp (Children 15 and under are free of charge)
