Antipodean Treasure: Connells Bay Sculpture Park
By Robin Woodward
The city of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest population base, sports four first-class sculpture parks within a 50-kilometer radius of its Central Business District. Of these, Connells Bay Sculpture Park is unique in presenting a microcosm of the country’s large-scale sculpture.1 Nestled into a private bay at the eastern end of Waiheke Island (a short ferry ride from downtown Auckland) within a landscape of native bush, Connells Bay Sculpture Park showcases New Zealand’s premier sculptors of the last two decades.
