Twilight at ‘Gibbs Sculpture Farm’

Fundraiser for: ‘Oranjehof’– The Dutch Connection Museum in Foxton (

Have you always wanted to visit Gibbs Farm, an hour’s drive north of Auckland, but found it’s all booked out for the few times a year that this unique park is open to the general public?

The Dutch Connection Museum Trust would like to offer you the rare chance to join us on a special twilight tour – with commentary by Leon van den Eijkel, one of the exhibiting artists.

The Gibbs Foundation has kindly and generously offered us the opportunity to host a special fundraising event at this spectacular farm in its stunning Kaipara landscape. There will be time to mix and mingle and walk around and explore the beautiful sculptures – like this one by Leon van den Eijkel.

Thursday 27 April, 2017 from 3.00 p.m. till 6.00 p.m.

2421 Kaipara Coast Highway, Makarau, Kaipara

Entry fee: $50 pp (extra donations welcome ☺)


Please come and join us!


It would be great if you could send this flyer to your contacts: the more the merrier!  Bring family and friends. Everybody is welcome. First come, first serve. Public days on Gibbs Farm are often ‘sold out’ within days, so grab the opportunity!

Kind regards, en met een hartelijke groet,

Arjan  van der Boon / Yolande van de Wetering,

Oranjehof will be a legacy to the major influence the Dutch community has had on the development of New Zealand, into a modern, dynamic and eclectic cultural society. It will tell the inspirational success story of the Dutch: from Abel Tasman’s first contact with Maori in 1642, to today’s achievements in business, farming, the arts and more. The ‘forgotten immigrant’ will become visible. Future generations of Dutch New Zealanders will be able to visit this facility to learn about their parents and forefathers and celebrate national events and festivities. And it will be a venue for exchanges between two countries – cultural, the visual arts, trade and science.
