Event Details

Presented by: Alumni and UC Foundation

Join us for an unforgettable day out at Gibbs Farm to raise funds for the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA). Don't miss this rare opportunity to visit! Tickets are limited!

The celebrated Gibbs Farm is an expansive open-air sculpture park located in the beautiful Kaipara Harbour, north of Auckland.  

The Farm boasts the greatest collection of large-scale outdoor artworks in the country by some of the world's most renowned artists, including several prominent University of Canterbury alumni, with artwork by Grahame Bennett, Chris Booth, Neil Dawson, and Peter Nicholls on display.

You’ll roam the park ‘free range’ and even come face-to-face with some exotic animals. The park is a 3 to 4 hour walking experience.

Dr Alan Gibbs is a University of Canterbury alumnus and sat on the UCSA student exec during his time at UC.  He received an Honorary Doctor of Engineering for his services and influence on New Zealand’s business, engineering, economic, political and cultural life.
