Sculpture in the Gardens is a free public event held for 3 months biennially at the Auckland Botanic Gardens. The exhibition’s main feature is a 2km sculpture trail through the Gardens. 20 outdoor works from the exhibiting arists are exhibited. The event also features an extensive indoor gallery of small sculptural works, glass, medallion works, and jewellery. Free guided walks, entertainment and workshops can be sought out; and specialty walks for elderly, and for blind guests are also provided. 

This exhibition is the 6th Sculpture in the Gardens, and celebrates 10 years since its inception - as such we will also celebrate the permanent sculptural works that now form a collection of over 20.
