Amazing art meets fine food

Entering into it’s 14th year, ART Waikino is now recognised as a major art exhibition on The Coromandel. Held annually at the Victoria Hall, Waikino over Labour weekend, it’s spreading its wings this year with a special sculpture category being exhibited at the Falls Retreat.

Opposite Owharoa Falls (and a pleasant 15 minute stroll across the new suspension bridge and along the Hauraki Rail Trail towards Paeroa), The Falls Retreat is renown for it’s award-winning bistro. Serving great food and wine, this is a chance to also enjoy some unique art amidst their beautiful, outdoor setting.

Sculptures are on display at The Falls Retreat from Saturday 25th – Monday 27th October – entry is free.

Art, handcraft and photography on display at Victoria Hall, Waikino over the same period.
