Fantastic walk and great sculptures.

Loved walking through paddocks, native bush & around the pond seeing all the sculptures. Make sure you have enough time to explore and enjoy the walk.

Good selection of dishes , both individual and for sharing. The tables overlooking the Lilly pond are a delight. It can get a bit warm in the glasshouse on a sunny day, but there are lots of tables outside.

We had a great day at the Brick Bay Winery and Sculpture Trail. Plenty of parking. Trail easy to walk. Loved the Kauri Forest area especially as it was a humid day and the canopy kept us cool. Sculptures were very interesting. We had a lovely cheeseboard and a glass of wine. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would... More

Came here on Sunday before returning to Auckland, and arrived around 10:30am so we were almost the 1st people to do the tour. They say to allow around 1 hour to do the trail but I would say give yourself at least 1hr 30mins, as we ran out of time. The sculpture is quite modern so not to everyone's taste,... More

Although a lo of hard work has been done to create this trail, quite frankly the sculptures were a little too modern for our taste. A few were well worth making the journey for, but the cost of entrance was high, and we had very little return for our money.

We have lived in Auckland all our lives and yesterday was the first time we discovered Brick Bay Winery and Sculpture trail. It is excellent for any overseas visitors or out-of-towners. The restaurant is fantastic and overlooks a very large pond full of the most beautiful water lilies. It's a destination that everyone should add to their 'To Do' list... More

This is a unique and very special walk. Nestled amongst native bush are amazing sculptures by various NZ artists. The walk itself is quite beautiful as it wanders through the bush and around ponds, the detour up to the kauri trees is well worth the extra little walk. The path is in good condition, either sand or wooden walkways making... More

Who could believe that there is such an amazing place tucked away in this quiet beach area. The sculpture trail is one of the best external art galleries in the world and certainly worth the price of admission if not more. I was a little skeptical initially yet as the walk unfolded I was amazed and enchanted by the foresight... More

The sculputure is outstandingly different and impressive in such a wonderful setting especially as it is connected to the Brick Bay Vineyard Café which in its own right mind blowingly outstanding

We had a great time doing the trail after lunch at the vineyard. Was a pretty easy 2km walk, and we were thankful for the shaded parts on a hot day! Lots of lovely NZ bush to see, and the trails boardwalks are done around the big trees which was great to see. Worth going up the stairs into the... More
