Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden is an evolving sculpture garden and native regeneration project.
Our mission is to support contemporary sculpture practice in New Zealand and to enhance native biodiversity in Canterbury.
The Garden opens to the public for exhibitions, with the major event being the Annual Autumn Exhibition held over the first three weekends in March. You can also visit the Garden by appointment outside of the major exhibition.
