Getting to Brick Bay
A 50 minute drive north of Auckland city. Take the northern motorway (SH1) to Warkworth. At the third set of traffic lights on SH1, turn right, then after 50m take the right fork to Sandspit/Snells Beach. After 8 km you will see the brown Brick Bay Wines & Sculpture Trail sign. After 1 km, turn left into Arabella Lane, then down the second driveway on the left.
Please allow for traffic delays in peak summer and weekends- or leave the city early and join us for brunch!
From Snells Beach or Algies Bay, walk along the beach north to Whisper Cove. Turning up through the Whisper Cove settlement along Arabella Lane you will reach Brick Bay Wines & Sculpture Trail at the top of the hill.
From Sandspit, with a half-tide receding, walk around the rocks to Snells Beach, through Whisper Cove and up Arabella Lane.
