Our sculptures have all been dreamed up and designed by Highlands Owner, Tony Quinn.
It’s fair to say they are pretty unique, and you won’t have seen anything quite like it, anywhere else!
Take the time to wander and enjoy these clever car sculptures, there are some great photo opportunities and the kids love them! Best of all – Entry is free! The Sculpture Park is located beside the Go Kart Building.
The Virtual Reality room is included as part of the entry to Highlands Museum and visitors will get the opportunity to experience what it feels like to sit in the passenger seat on a virtual lap around Highlands with Greg Murphy, ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett and Hayden Paddon. The Virtual Reality hot laps experience is the first of its kind in New Zealand and the video and virtual reality content will be updated regularly.
The new attraction also features a Wall of Fame and video interviews with the current generation of Kiwi motorsport legends including Scott McLaughlin and Shane van Gisbergen and a few of the older generation including Jim Richards and Tony Quinn.
“Jim and I might skew the average age slightly but it’s always important to have a couple of old guns to keep the young fellas in check!” says Quinn.
The video interviews offer a unique insight into the personalities of some of the stars of the sport and what drives them.
“New Zealand is incredibly lucky to have had some wonderful guardians of the sport over the years but the current generation of drivers will also go down in the history books as great competitors. We hope the new attraction inspires the next generation too”
-Josie Spillane, CEO at Highlands
While exploring the Sculpture Park don’t forget to take the kids to try out our Flying Fox outside the Go Kart building.
