Chris Pointon creates wooden sculptures specifically to enhance the garden, terrace, patio or outdoor spaces. Each is individually crafted from century-old totara strainers and fenceposts, jarrah and macrocarpa sleepers, or native timber driftwood from East Coast beaches. He makes a range of human and guardian figures, and stylised native bird forms.
See Chris's amazing artworks up close this November as part of the Garden and Art Trail ❤

At I Te Tāhā Pārī you can see forever on a clear day, with its 360-degree vista. The view closer at hand is also one to enjoy with the upper level of the garden bordered by dense trees and hydrangea. Below this, paths lead the way amongst sunny banks of layered planting including shady camellia bowers. Formal elements feature near the pool and home. Green fingered owners Stephen Keeves & Phillipa Woodward say the garden has been redesigned and replanted over 16 years and features a mix of both native and exotic mass plantings. Put this gem of a garden on your must see list ❤

Beautiful and rustic.

Rob McGregor has a red letterbox, lives by the beach, reads a lot, paints a little, tutors regularly, drinks coffee regularly, plays the piano occasionally and enjoys food, music and company often. His acrylic paintings, which are, in fact, most often stories of his life and interests, naturally include places he's visited, cafés, musicians, beaches and nudes. They're usually colourful ❤
We're delighted to have Rob back again as a festival artist. We know you will love seeing his work and talking to this fun and talented artist in person!

If you get a chance - have a chat to Rob. Top man!

Williamson Resort is a labour of love created three years ago with the help of Nichola Vague Landscape Architect. It’s a tropical oasis in a Te Puke rural setting which is perfect for entertaining guests and family. The large space has four different seating areas and an in-ground pool which is surrounded by bromeliads, tractor seed plants, large sago palms and much more. This garden will provide plenty of inspiration for those who enjoy beautiful landscaping. Be sure to keep an eye out for the iceberg roses too ❤
