Limestone Rock Sculpture

The ringing of an anvil can be heard high in the hills overlooking the beautiful Waipara Valley. Raymond Herber's workshop is situated in an old Amberley Lime Works, which is now known as Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park.

The Quarry has been carved out of limestone once used by local farmers over the generations for spreading onto their properties. This once derelict quarry has now been transformed into a magical outdoor exhibition space, a no small task. Truck loads of top soil have been carted onto the property for plants to grow, like hardy natives best suited to the hardy climate. This is a place like no other and people now come from far and wide to picnic, to relax and spend time in this stunning setting to view the sometimes "wacky" art works one display.

Activities on offer:

- Rock sculptures
- Garden ornamental displays
- Garden visit


707 Ram Paddock Road, Broomfield 7482, New Zealand
