The Kauri Coast regions of Northland is a favourite place for artists to "be creative" - we have the sparkling fresh water Kai Iwi Lakes, the vast expanse of the coastline known as Ripirio Beach and the settlements of Baylys Beach, Mahuta Gap, Maunganui Bluff, Glinks Gully with the towering sand dunes - you get some wonderful colours with the setting sun relected on the sand dunes. Kauri Forests with the many shades of green, the volcanic peak of Tokatoka with the amazing views from the top looking over farmland and the Northern Wairoa River. The artists on the Kauri Coast have so much inspiration from nature right on their doorstep.
