The Sculpture Trail

The Sculpture Trail

Stay curious and creative on The Sculpture Trail, and enjoy a leisurely ride for art lovers, with a visit to the gallery of a renown, local sculptor. Experience fresh and authentic paddock to plate cuisine for lunch served with wine.

Embark on a creative journey of discovery exploring the fascinating sculptures made from scrap metal and raw materials, located on the Sculpture Trail and at the sculptor's gallery. Leaving Paeroa, riders cross over the Ohinemuri River, following the old train track formation through lush Waikato farmland dotted with dairy cows and farm animals.

The Kaimai-Mamaku Ranges, Mt Te Aroha (The Mountain of Love), and expansive views over the Hauraki Plains are a feast for the eyes. Passing through Tirohia and Mangaiti there’s time to slow down the pace, take in the landscape, stop for coffee and admire the scenery.

Re-fuel with a delicious buffet lunch of New Zealand lamb and beef carvery in Te Aroha West before riding the Sculpture Trail. A Gallery stop in Te Aroha affords a labyrinth of fascinating creations, illustrating the breadth and depth of the artist’s talent. Taste the mouthwatering flavours of the region with a visit to a local boutique producer, before your return journey to Paeroa by shuttle.
