The Quarry Arts Centre

28 May 2019

The Quarry Arts Centre is a unique hub for Northland's creative community. Situated in a disused quarry in central Whangarei, the Quarry Arts Centre is a home to artist studios, a ceramics store, a community kiln, hire-able rooms for pottery and art, a delightful little cafe, and two galleries.
