Check out the amazing stone sculpture and views

This is an easy walk out to a small point where you will discover the “Chris Booth Sculpture,” a captivating artwork built right on the edge adding to the dramatic views. This intriguing piece, created from recycled materials, is stunning and well worth going to see. I still can’t work out how the stones are put together.

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Hauraki Gulf and surrounding islands from designated lookout points.

This is one of the only two walks on Rotoroa Island. The other one, which you can do on the same day is called the North Tower Lookout Walk, it’s a lovely walk.

Watch out for Weka!

The island is full of them, you won’t miss seeing one. These flightless birds are quite friendly, if you crouch down and wait one might come close to you as it gets on with it’s business of finding food.

How to get to Rotoroa Island

Remember to check ferry schedules and book your tickets in advance, especially during peak season. Pack water, sunscreen, and comfortable clothing for your walk. With a bit of planning, the Sculpture Loop Walk promises a rewarding experience, combining nature, art, and stunning island scenery.

I arrived on our yacht so didn’t need to catch the ferry. My walk starts from Men’s Bay instead of the ferry wharf. It’s only another 10 minutes to add to the walk total.
