Waimamaku is located along the Hokianga Art Trail. There are many options to view and purchase art and craft from local artisans. Cafe's and galleries provide excellent opportunities to see the latest creations in a casual setting. Some artists are happy for you to "drop in" anytime for a private viewing, while other artists prefer to arrange viewings by appointment. If you're not sure, it is best to contact first.
