The Wind Wand

The Wind Wand is a 48-metre kinetic sculpture located in New Plymouth, New Zealand. The sculpture includes a 45-metre tube of red fibreglass, and was made to designs by artist Len Lye. To residents, it is one of the main icons of New Plymouth. During the night, the Wind Wand lights up. Costing over $300,000 it was originally installed in December 1999 along with the Coastal Walkway, it had to be taken down within weeks. After repairs it was reinstalled in June 2001. The red fibreglass tube stands vertical in still air, but bends in the wind. On 17 September 2017, the Wind Wand was struck by lightning.

Brooklands Zoo is one of the country’s best little zoos that always delivers a great day out. It’s home to a lovely bunch of animals including farm animals, reptiles, meerkats, monkeys, tamarins and more. It’s also got a fantastic bird aviary that you can walk through and an awesome playground for the kids to play in. Our favourites are the guinea pigs but there are plenty of stars at Brooklands to choose from. Entry to the zoo is free but it’s partly maintained by donations at the gate so any bit you can give goes a long way.
