Open Hours: Sundays 2pm to 5pm

Lemon Hill Gallery is an art gallery in a converted shipping container. It is perched on a hill top on a farm in the Wairewa Valley, with magnificent views over state forest and farmland. It celebrates creativity, resourcefulness and the human spirit and was established after the Black Summer Bush Fires.
On a Sunday afternoon, after viewing the art, you can have a cup of tea or coffee and a lemon slice and enjoy the conversation in the big shed.
Adjacent to the gallery are the remains of the burnt chassis of a stage coach and wagonette.


Lemon Hill Gallery is an art gallery on private property with exhibitions that change every four weeks. It is only open on Sunday afternoons and is run on a non commercial basis. The adjacent big shed is the venue for afternoon tea for the viewers usually served with a lemon slice. Conversation is valued. The opening of each exhibition is accompanied by music played by The Saxy Beats, who are an unusual combination of sax and irish.

The gallery can be opened at other times by appointment.

Artists are invited to apply to exhibit here. Note that the gallery is booked 15 months ahead. The space is free and there is no commission.
