    We found our anniversary celebration gift at this gallery, and the added bonus was looking around a lovely space, with great energy and beautifully displayed artwork. The owner also gave us a recommendation on where to eat which was brilliant!

    I was delighted to visit this great farmer's market a couple of times in December '18 & January '19 when staying with my daughter in Whangarei.
    It's bustling, busy and has a fantastic array of wares on offer - locally produced honey and Manuka honey, garden plants, baked goods, homemade pickles and chutneys, locally grown fruit and veg, locally reared meat and sausages, local cheeses, flowers and even buckets of fresh kina.
    Most of the stall holders are very friendly and happy to talk about their produce, being very informative.
    I absolutely love this market and always spend much more than I intend to.
    It's a "must do" whenever I visit Whangarei.

    What a great setting for an artists commune - nestled below the bush-covered walls of an old quarry. The place is very laid back and though not all the places will necessarily be open when you visit, you are sure to find things of interest and someone friendly to chat with.

    This is a lovely gallery with a very unique gift shop with really great jewelry and the likes to buy. The paintings are very exquisite. Well worth a visit.

    My husband, daughter and son-in-law ate out at Whangarei's Canopy Night Market, by the attractive Town Basin, one Friday night in January.
    Apparently the market we went to was small compared to how it normally is but maybe that was because it was shortly after Christmas and New Year?
    There were a good selection of stalls nonetheless and most stallholders are very friendly and chatty,.
    We feasted on Hungarian fried bread, quesadillas, spanakopita, chicken dim sum, pork dumplings and Chinese chicken skewers.
    We are great fans on NZ's Gourmet Food Night Markets. They have a great atmosphere and it's good value for money, where you can try a bit of this and a bit of that

    Greg Barron and Jin Ling make, exhibit and sell their beautiful award winning ceramics from their workshop/Gallery in Glenbervie. The entire ceramic process is done on site, from making the clay to firing the finished forms in their wood fire kiln.

    Disclaimer: I have shown my photos and paintings in this gallery, but the exhibition I viewed had work by many women artists in celebration of universal sufferage and the range was really interesting and widely creative.

    This is a wonderful gallery to visit, and always has new and exciting work on display.
    I have recently participated in a Group Exhibition - 'Laboratorium' and attended the current exhibition opening featuring epic work by Chris Wilkie - 'ENDEAVOUR- Finding and Losing'

    Beautiful space and even more beautiful art. Excellent prices and wide range of selection, I liked the fact that every time I go into the gallery the there's always new art work to look at.

    Such beautiful paper, each piece is a work of art in itself! I ordered online and it came beautifully packaged as well. I look forward to using this paper - if I can bring myself to!!

    Although a bit pricey, the ice creams are delicious and 2 out of our 3 kids could not finish theirs!

    Wow, loved this place. Lots of variety in artists and good quality art produced and available for sale. Keith Grinter has a working glass studio right alongside. The staff member working the day we visited was very friendly and very helpful.

    We always visit this large bookshop.

    They have a very expansive inventory.

    A good cabinet of rare books, lots and lots of every subject you could think of.

    Set aside a couple of hours browsing.

    Most books on line so they could narrow your search if needed.

    Toilet for customers available and comfortable chairs and couches to take a load off whilst reading.

    Reasonable prices.

    Can put you on a want list.

    Enjoy
