Nestled into bush clad hills only 5 minutes walk from central Whangarei is a little piece of paradise nurturing the creative spirit of Northland and known as The Quarry Arts Centre.
Open to the public 7 days a week, visitors can stroll through the grounds and see resident artists in their studios, purchase hand-crafted goods directly from local artists at the Quarry Craft Co-op shop, view exhibitions at the Yvonne Rust Gallery, bring the family for a picnic by the waterfall or take a walk in the Coronation Reserve up to the pa site or over the hill to the Quarry Subtropical Garden – all for free.
We also run a variety of courses throughout the year for adults and children, as well as selling clay and art supplies in the main office from Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm (except public holidays).
The Quarry incorporates the Yvonne Rust Gallery, Te Kowhai Print Trust* and the Quarry Craft Co-op Shop*.
