Such a fun place. We didn't eat here but we did try a range of the wines - after we had looked around some of the sculpture in and around the vineyard. Really rate the wine. Very helpful information on each one we tried. The food looked lovely and the setting is gorgeous.

This park is very well set out. The sculpture's you pass are amazing both in the look and the price per piece. Treat yourself to a very nice cup of coffee once you have completed the walk. The walk is great for all ages and fitness levels

Have visited this place many times and I think when it's rainiing is the best. A brollie and some waterproof shoes and off you go. Meander around the lovely paths, viewing the amazing sculptures and then finish which a bit to eat at the restaurant. It's worth buying a years access card if you are local.

Brick Bay is a fabulous spot to take friends coming to visit the Mahurangi/Matakana region - their wines are superb especially their delicious rose and meals and platters divine - great staff, gorgeous surroundings and the trail itself is an added bonus

This restaurant has a unique setting amongst a lilly pond and a sculpture trail. The food is goos and the sharing plates are excellent. Book ahead to avoid disappointment. You could easily while away an entire afternoon sipping away at your chilled glass of rose or white and enjoy the stupendous surroundings.
