The picturesque Matakana wine region is home to over 30 boutique vineyards, olive groves, restaurants and the famous Sunday Farmers Market. Here you'll discover Brick Bay, host to a dynamic exhibition of large-scale sculptures set in a stunning natural environment of native bush, wildlife and ponds bursting with waterlilies. When you arrive, you'll be enchanted by your surroundings of towering native trees, majestic palms, a precious kauri forest and lakes, all alive with native birdlife. The two kilometer (1.2 mile) trail of grass, bark mulch, pebbles and wooden boardwalks winds its way past 50 sculptures that fit into its rural setting. At the end of the trail you'll have lunch in the Glass House featuring the freshest seasonal cuisine inspired by the farm's produce, orchards and gardens. Next, you'll visit Heron's Flight Winery, a small family-owned and operated vineyard, for a sampling of their delicious wines.
