About the path

The Oneroa Art Path is an easy loop taking in an open park, a suburban back road with baches, and the main street of Oneroa.

It is baby buggy and child friendly. In places you will be walking along a road verge. There are good views from Alison Park and lots to see. The route can be done all year round, with only a short section on grass.

This route leads you past the highest concentration of public artworks on the island. In the summer this increases even more during Sculpt Oneroa, an annual sculpture exhibition. There are several art galleries along the route, as well as many cafes and shops.

Start at the main entrance to the Waiheke Library. Have a look inside and around the Artworks complex before you head out, lots to admire here. The architecture of the library is especially interesting. Cross the road, and take the walkway on the other side to your right. Follow this path through Alison Park, where you will see a series of sculptures purchased by the Waiheke Local Board from previous Sculpture on the Gulf exhibitions. You’ll pass through the old Bowling Club, which has now become an environmental centre.

Walk 100m along Mako Street until you meet the path that leads back down to Alison Park and take in the rest of the sculptures. At the eastern end of the park, head left to Kuaka Road, turn right, then left at Weka Road to the Waiheke Post Office. From here you can wander up to your left along Ocean View Road through the man shopping area of Oneroa. Return to your start at the library, at the top of the village.
