Did ya know? Waiheke is a killer art destination. Some of the biggest names in NZ art live here – Chris Bailey, Virginia King, Fiona Pardington, to name a few. We have a Community Art Gallery good enough to be listed in The New York Times prestigious book, 36 hours in Asia and the Pacific. We have private sculpture parks that rival the best in the world.
