Crazy, fun sculpture park & mini putt

We had such s great time at Carlucci Land :) what a crazy genius the creator must be! Sculptures are fun & imaginative, & the mini putt is a great course. Highly recommended.

This is a course that requires accuracy and sublety .Judging the right power for the uphill holes will help your score, however this course is pure fun, the options each hole presents will keep you thinking as well as laughing triumphantly then sheepishly. After the game walked up further up the hill across the steel pipe walkway to see more... More

A great place for mini golf or a wander through creative metal and 'junk' sculptures. Created by an artist-mechanic with industrial-scale tools using former industrial equipment crafted into entertaining sculptures and functional and inventive mini-golf holes on a hillside course. Fun for pre-schoolers to agile 80+'s, including the teens and young adults! Highly recommended. On the bus route so well... More

Great place for young and old to spend an afternoon of fun. The course is very unique from any you will ever be on, it is basically an art piece!

Kids & adults in our party love this Mini gold with a difference. The junk art is fabulous, at times humourous & very clever.

My partner and I spent a wonderful morning here enjoying a well thought out18 holes of mini golf. Every direction you look there is another piece of quirky art that catches your eye. This paticular morning the reception desk was not manned and a honesty box was available which included a self service eftpos machine (classic NZ). It would be... More

Spend a great couple of hours playing mini-golf - the golf course is eclectic with some great iron art works dotted around the course. Take a group and it would be lots of fun...! Definitely coming back next trip to Wellington....

Great place for a bit of fun. Everything has been recycled or repurposed to create this mini golf course. With some very interesting ways of getting the ball to the hole. Not for the serious player as courses are not very well maintained but fun nonetheless.
