The Wind Wand
The Wind Wand is a 48-metre kinetic sculpture located on the Scenic Coastal Walkway with a stunning backdrop of the Tasman Sea. The sculpture includes a 45-metre tube of red fibreglass, and was made to the design of artist Len Lye. To locals, it is one of the main icons of New Plymouth. During the night, the Wind Wand lights up.
The awesome Kinetic Art stands tall and bends to tell you the direction of the wind. It is one of the Highlights of the 13.2km Award Winning Scenic Coastal Walkway. Locals say touch the Wind Wand before you buy your local lotto ticket and you could be in for a win.
