FRom 24th JANUARY 2022, THE WINTERGARDEN PAVILION AND CAFÉ WILL TAKE PART IN A TRULY IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE CELEBRATING AOTEAROA ART
ART, AND MARINE CONSERVATION. WHALE TALES IS A PUBLIC ART TRAIL EXPLORING THE CITY OF SAILS, AND YOU’RE INVITED TO SEE OUR WHALE TALE IN THE AUCKLAND DOMAIN !
From 24 January- 18 April 2022 a trail of unique and stunning whale Tail sculptures, designed by artists and children, sponsored by business and organisations will animate Tāmaki Makaurau and bring to life themes of protecting and restoring the mauri of our Ocean. Inspired by the Bryde’s Whale, the 80 Big Broos (large Tail sculptures) and 80 Pēpi (mini Tail sculptures) will dot Auckland’s streets, parks, and open spaces to provide residents and visitors a fresh opportunity to explore the City of Sails.
The legacy of Whale Tales will continue long after the fun of the trail has ended with the sculptures being auctioned to raise significant funds to power the vital work WWF-New Zealand does to look after our moana (ocean) and her marine life throughout Aotearoa, particularly in and around the Hauraki Gulf.
