Waikino Arts Trail Wander-FULLY BOOKED

Thursday, 8 April 2021

Grade 2

Nearest Town: Waihi

Registration Region: Waihi

Duration: 2-3 hours

Start Time: 10:00 am - Waikino Railway Station Carpark

Cost: Donation requested

Leaving from the Waikino Railway Station we will meander our way upwards past lush green grazing pastures, spectacular rolling hills, quaint cottages and grand old villas. Waikino is filled with amazing and unique art pieces and creative people … potters, painters, sculptors, ceramicists, spectacular gardens and more. Along the way we will pop into a few studios to see what’s being created, then wend our way down to the Waikino Hotel. This historic building is filled to the brim with mining relics and antiques. We’ll have a beer, wine, lemonade, coffee, tea or water and a delicious pub lunch or snack!

Then back across the river past the iconic Victoria Battery site … so much to see, be sure to bring your cameras.

Our first studio is Rod Hawkins on Victoria Street, Waikino who does copper sculptures and has a lovely garden to wander through for the morning.

One of the other studios we will be visiting is Con Keirnan’s please find below his details for further reference.
