Take the Southern Loop Track to see Chris Booth's stunning sculpture, Kaitiaki, which leans towards Ruthe Passage.

Chris Booth's sculpture on Rotoroa Island is an impressive piece, comprising three post-tensioned arcs of boulders strung together.

It was commissioned in memory of Jack Plowman, father of island benefactor Neal Plowman.

Inspired by wind bent branches of a nearby pohutukawa tree, the sculpture celebrates the life of an old identity who had lifelong connections with the island and the Hauraki Gulf.
