With glass, ceramic, jewellery, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, carving, textile and fibre art, woodworking there really is something for everyone!
You will often hear kiwis at night in the adjacent bush reserve, and you can join the generations ofamilies who have photographed their children on the historic "Big Tomato" (visit him on his own new Facebook page "The Big Tomato PapaAroha"
