Special Highlight: Experience the Virginia King earth sculpture ‘Koru’ 2001. A site specific commission at Brick Bay Farm. This large scale land work measures 80 metres in diameter and rises to over 10 metres in height. This work will be opened up to the public for this special event on a guided tour at 2:00pm, along with the ever changing exhibition of around 50 sculptures along the 2km trail set amongst a landscape framed by towering native trees and majestic palms, abundant birdlife, and green pastures all overlooking the celebrated Brick Bay vineyard.

'Koru' is a major earth work sculpture made to celebrate the essence and joy of life at Brick Bay, The spiral form acknowledges land that was once densely forested with ancient kauri. Ten ‘islands’ form the koru and gradually rise from the lake. Three are lower islands within the lake, and the other seven complete the koru, appearing like some huge fossil lying on the hillside. The contoured earth forms spiral to a height of ten metres, where a level space at the centre creates a ten-metre diameter performance area. Narrow walkways across the lake, link the first three islands and transport visitors, pukeko and an occasional sheep into the Koru entry.
