Join Te Tuhi for a visit to Gibbs Farm, the internationally renowned sculpture park situated on the Kaipara Harbour.

Boasting Aotearoa’s most impressive collection of large-scale outdoor sculptures by local and international artists, including Chris Booth, Daniel Buren, Andy Goldsworthy, Anish Kapoor, Sol LeWitt, Zhan Wang, Marijke de Goey and Richard Serra, Gibbs Farm is a truly memorable experience for all who visit. These tickets offer a rare opportunity to view this impressive 400-hectare open-air sculpture park overlooking the stunning Kaipara Harbour, also home to many exotic animals including giraffes, buffalo and alpacas.

All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to Te Tuhi’s Creative Community development programme. This includes Te Tuhi’s training café for people with intellectual disabilities; the provision of art, design and art appreciation classes, and supporting local creative community activities. Your donation will support Te Tuhi to continue to deliver creative programmes for the community.

Gibbs Farm is a three-to-four-hour walking experience – ensure to come with walking shoes, sun protection and plenty of water. Pack your own picnic or opt for an Eat My Lunch pack and you’ll be supporting a Kiwi kid in need. 

This event will follow government guidelines in order to take place safely. We are optimistic that it will be able to happen, but if it cannot, we will reschedule, and we will be in touch with all ticketholders with the new date. If you are unable to attend the new date, a refund will be offered.

Buy a ticket for a young creative

This year you can donate a ticket for rangatahi in Te Tuhi’s youth programme, Young Creatives. Te Tuhi is looking for patrons to sponsor 12 young people to visit Gibbs Farm.

Young Creatives provides learning experiences for rangatahi outside of mainstream education which enable them to explore the contemporary art world, express themselves through creative practice, engage with artists, mentors and tutors in a supported environment and gain insight into career paths within the creative industries.

Your donation will enable a young person to see Gibbs Farm, while also supporting Te Tuhi’s Creative Community development programme.
