Papatūānuku - Urban Flora and Fauna Trails

ARTS. Come and enjoy our inaugural Papatūānuku - Urban Flora and Fauna Trails. 

In locations across our buzzy neighbourhood, our place will be alive with art and festivities.

There’s something for everyone, with local businesses hosting displays of artworks along the trails, and events and live experiences for locals and visitors to enjoy.

Visual Artists, Photographers, Ceramicists, Sculpture installations in Kelmarna Gardens. Art is so valuable to our souls.


In Māori tradition, Papatūānuku is the land. She is a mother earth figure who gives birth to all things, including people. Trees, birds and people are born from the land, which then nourishes them. Let’s connect and learn from our artists, care for our local environment, and above all explore and have fun here in Grey Lynn & Around.


Pick up a FLYER anywhere along the Trail – walk to 32 amazing venues!


And you can do a bit of bird-spotting along the Papatūānuku - Urban Flora and Fauna Trails. Ten metal bird sculptures have been installed between Grey Lynn and the West Lynn shops. Each has a letter attached, they spell a code. Simply use this discount code at checkout on and be in to win prizes during Artweek.

EATS & BEATS. We welcome you to enjoy our neighbourhood, transformed with the month-long festival of arts, eats, and beats. 



Grey Lynn & Around is renowned for its eclectic collection of cafes, restaurants and bars. All of them popular with some of them downright famous.


To celebrate Grey Lynn Eats & Beats, participating businesses will create and offer a unique signature dish or beverage that will capture the spirit of our neighbourhood.


You can dine out on a sustainable plant-based burger or go large at the city’s hottest new BBQ joint; eat at Café Viet for Vietnamese Cuisine at its best, or call in to Tart Bakery - an Auckland classic. There’s a fine line-up to suit all tastes and budgets.


Make the most of the opportunity to reconnect with friends at a series of live music events hosted by some of the city’s best-loved watering holes, including Pocket Bar, Freida Margolis and Malt Bar.
