Maritime Museum in the background. It's a great place to spend a few hours - there's lots of general nautical history but a great deal of local history as well. The building itself was the infant city's first courthouse in the 19th century, presided over by the famous Judge Begbie. You can still visit the upstairs courtroom and you might get to see or hear the ghost....

Douglas Coupland. He is a prolific artist and author whose work is fascinating in it's playful irreverence. This one titled, 'Gumhead' and was located on grounds of the gallery. It is a 7 ft. sculpture of the artist's head which he has invited the public to participate in by plastering it in, yes gum. This is a recent installation but when we arrived it was already quite covered in the stuff. He work often references everyday material in this way, inviting the viewer to rethink what is art using everyday materials in new ways. It is a really interesting show and I recommend it. - Fern
