Each year visitors and artists from all over Northland come to take part in the Whangarei Heads Arts Trail in a vibrant two-day Easter Exhibition.

Artists show their work at a range of private and community locations spread along 30 km of stunning Whangarei Heads coastline. Exhibitors include painters, potters, glass workers, jewellers, photographers, flax weavers, metal workers, wood workers, sculptors, textile and mosaic artists and each year new guests are invited to help ring the changes.

W.H.A.T. is the perfect opportunity to buy work direct from the Artist, to see where it was created and talk to the person who created it.

The trail starts in Onerahi and ends at Ocean Beach. Entry to all studios and community venues is free! To make the most of your visit, purchase a handy trail guide in advance to support the longevity of the event and to plan your day.

If you have not been to visit Whangarei Heads the ‘Arts Trail’ before, then plan to do so this year. There are pristine white beaches, amazing coastal walks, great food and beautiful places to stay.

If you are an Artist yourself why not contact us and ask about guest status or participate your artwork in the trail.
