Bring the whole family to celebrate the opening of Auckland’s newest destination for art lovers, the Didsbury Art Trail!
Experience larger-than-life public artworks from some of New Zealand’s top artists as you wind your way along picturesque coastline and through parks and playgrounds, taking in unique heritage sites along the way.
The walk is approximately 5km long and mostly flat boardwalk or graded gravel – perfect for scooters, cycles and prams. You can start at any point along the trail and do some or all of it.
There are loads of fun events scheduled to celebrate the opening, including kids’ activities, artists’ workshops, and plenty of ice cream and coffee stops along the trail. Plus, the popular Catalina Bay Farmers Market will be hosting their 10 year anniversary celebration on the waterfront. Located alongside cafes, restaurants and the Little Creatures microbrewery, it’s the perfect pitstop for hungry art lovers.
BYO headphones. Hear from the artists themselves and experience the trail in a whole new way by downloading the Didsbury Art Trail audio tour. Just search for ‘Didsbury Trail’ in your preferred podcast app which will be available from Monday 24th February so you can listen on the day while you view each piece of art.
