Outside the Box

Come and experience our balloon room installation. This will be a unique visual experience that allows you to get inside the artwork and enjoy true sensory involvement. Everyone is invited to draw an image on a balloon and add it to the room in exchange for another balloon, once the artwork has been experienced. Then each person takes a balloon home with them, displaying a message or drawing from someone else in the community. This is for everyone young and old, so head down with friends and family to have a go and be part of the art.

Matakana River Tour

OVER 60’S PROGRAMME

The Matakana River was a vital route not only for local Maori but also for early European settlers. The fertile surrounding lands of Matakana attracted European settlers as early as 1849, and a variety of businesses all relying on the river to transport their goods back to the masses of Auckland. As the village prospered, roads were paved and the once busy waterway slowed. We would like to share this historic and vibrant river with you. Step on board and enjoy the scenic beauty, as we cruise on the sheltered safe waters and travel though a tidal wonderland that showcases New Zealand’s diverse landscape

DATE: FRI 6 APRIL (Different date to brochure)

TIME: 9AM – 4PM
