Aucklanders and visitors to the city can now enjoy a new outdoor gallery featuring world-class works from 11 New Zealand artists thanks to a major transformation project at Auckland Airport.

The Auckland Airport Outdoor Gallery is part of a wider ‘place-making’ initiative to enhance the cultural and social aspects in the area and help establish The District at Auckland Airport as a cohesive business district, offering the city’s best working environment with sought-after amenities.

Auckland Airport has invested in sculptures that have diverse designs, materials and concepts from some of New Zealand’s most established artists, as well as up-and-coming talent. Featured artists are: Aaron McConchie, Aiko Groot, Jeff Thomson, Greer Twiss, Graham Bennett, Terry Stringer, Fatu Feu’u, David McCracken, Fletcher Vaughan, Gregor Kregar and Phil Price. An added feature allows visitors to the gallery to scan a QR code at each sculpture for additional information about the work and artist.

The majority of the initial collection of sculptures at the Auckland Airport Outdoor Gallery is located in the Esplanade, an open space adjacent to the historic Abbeville Estate function venue and the Airport Shopping Centre on George Bolt Memorial Drive. The works are displayed in landscaped grounds in and around a wetlands area, with visitors able to view them from walkways.

The Outdoor Gallery is signposted at the entrance to John Goulter Drive from George Bolt Memorial Drive. Access to the Gallery is available through five walkways via John Goulter Drive, Leonard Issit Drive, Tom Pearce Drive and Uenuku Way.

Parking is available at the Auckland Airport car park on Leonard Issit Drive and a new public car park was constructed on John Goulter Drive. The Outdoor Gallery will be free of charge and open to the public seven days a week.
