After five years of holidaying at Waihī Beach, Nita and Alex Robertson decided to settle here permanently.

They fell in love with the beautiful beach, the amazing climate and its close proximity to surrounding towns and cities including the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Alex says, “We found the local community so friendly and helpful, so when the Waihī Beach Art Gallery came up for sale, we jumped at the opportunity to be part of this wonderful seaside hub.” Both are passionate about art and have travelled the globe, visiting art galleries and have even brought a few pieces of art back for their home. When they took over the gallery in November 2022, they were excited and surprised at how many talented and amazing local and New Zealand artists they have access to.

In addition to the gallery, Nita and Alex have introduced a selection of homewares and gifts. Nita has a background in interior design and sources quality products from both New Zealand suppliers and international markets They are happy to help with any interior questions or colour ideas for your Home or Bach. Whether you are looking for a friend’s birthday present, 21st birthday gift, wedding present, new painting or simply a treat for yourself, it’s all at The Gallery.

An added bonus is that they have an in-house commercial coffee machine and will make your coffee of choice while you browse the gallery.
