The ART at HOME trail is an opportunity for art lovers to view an exciting variety of homes and art collections throughout the Wanaka area. Artists and collectors from six destinations have generously opened their homes to allow you the privilege of viewing and discussing their own personal treasures.

There is something for everyone to enjoy and appreciate, from a family collection of antiques, books and paintings, to objets d’art cherished for centuries; from a stunning modern house set into a high rocky outcrop with contemporary environmental sculpture, to an international art collection exhibited lovingly in a country house, tucked above the slopes of a boutique vineyard. This will surely be an art tour to be shared, and remembered.

Enticing and uplifting refreshments will be available in stunning locations with comfortable seating. Some artworks will be for sale.

This is organised by Wanaka Rotary and proceeds go towards a sculptural installation. Maps and further information will be available from the Festival box office from 8.30am on Friday 19th April.Please see booking link at bottom of this page.

Admission:  $27 including refreshments
