Lava Glass Sculpture Garden

The latest attraction in Taupo is the spectacular new Lava Glass Sculpture Garden set in an acre of manicured grounds with more than 500 glass sculptures.

The board walk takes you on a 400m amble around ponds, through fields of glass flowers. You can sit and enjoy the water tumbling down the 15 piece waterfall, then continue your browse through a native tree bird area. Also check out the giant Kaleidoscopes and glass birds and sculptures.

Inspired by a recent trip to Seattle, the world centre of art glass, master glass blower, Lynden Over and wife Christine Robb decided to create a garden to "wow" their clients. For the last 4 months they have worked tirelessly producing all the sculptures and the landscaping for their creation.

The glass sculptures have been created by Lynden and his team of accomplished glass workers. The pieces are the biggest pieces of glass ever blown in New Zealand and are a colourful delight.

In the centre of the garden is a natural amphitheatre with seating for 350 people and a mini sound shell perfect for small intimate concerts or events.
