Sculpture in the Gardens forms a 2 kilometre sculpture trail through the Auckland Botanic Gardens. 20 outdoor sculptures form the exhibition, an inspiring mix of well established and emerging artists from across New Zealand.

Designed to entice visitors further into the Gardens, the trail winds through the garden collections, across the central lawn and back up to Huakaiwaka, the award-winning Auckland Botanic Gardens visitor centre.

Many of the Gardens' permanent sculptural works can be seen from the trail too. An indoor gallery featuring works from over 60 artists, guided walks on Sunday mornings, and drop-in activities offer additional ways for visitors to connect with the art.

Mobility options are provided for the trail.

Free entry and free parking.
