The New Zealand Tree Project

Exhibition

The New Zealand Tree Project is an innovative film and photography venture, where a small team of scientists, photographers/videographers and tree climbers captured imagery of majestic trees from viewpoints that people rarely get to experience from the forest floor. 

By using innovative mediums such as time-lapse, hyper-lapse and 3D video, the team were able to create one of a kind footage of the forest from ground breaking new angles.

The centre piece of the exhibition is a portrait of a huge rimu created by stitching together more than 60 photos taken over 4 weeks. Alongside it are large photographic prints and an epic time lapse video.

Milk Matters

Exhibition

How is milk made and processed? Why is the Waikato considered the ‘dairy capital of New Zealand’?

In this interactive, educational exhibition created for children and families, you can explore the issues and advancements in agricultural science that are paving the way for an even more productive, efficient and environmentally-conscious industry.

Milk Matters celebrates success, telling the stories of our local farmers, and explains some of the science and technology that surrounds dairy farming -  from the underground (soil science) to the atmosphere (climate change).

You will be surprised by the energy and invention that is focused on this everyday food!
