Basket of Dreams

Queenstown Hill, Queenstown, NZ


Basket of Dreams' was created for 'TIME WALK', Queenstown's Millenium project (2000) which has seen the existing walking trail up Queenstown hill transformed into a heritage and art trail.

The 'Basket' is near the top of the hill and is built to lie inside of, eat your sandwich, and imagine. Its a place to be with others and with the magic of the Wakatipu landscape.
