Mind boggling, hands on experience and very funny. Loved it.
An artist whom set up a lot of lovely unnecessary things, mainly built from rubbish, Most of the ideas you can enjoy for free, it is okay to spend $5 for the rest, because, in general, it is a great setup, not mainly for the things you see more for the lovely ideas!
One of the coolest places we have ever been! Had no idea what to expect, and were delighted and impressed by all the quirky and fun creations! Like being a kid again, full of wonder and joy. Definitely don't miss stopping here, and pay the money to experience The Theater and support the artist!
Amazing little bus with tons of quirky inventions and the $5 to get into the main gallery was well worth it. Good coffee too!

Unbelievable! Like being a kid again. Full of excitement and intrigue. Amazing creativity by the artist to turn seemingly mundane and useless junk into something fun and playful.
Very funny gallery with lots of stuff to explore. The experiments are made with so much love and creativity. It is definitely worth $5. Totally recommended.
Really nice to have a look around and you can touch a lot of things! Really well made. Very creative!
What an awesome place. Lots of cool, funny and creative inventions. Never expected such a lovely place in that location.
A great bus with strange and tiny art creations, you have to visit this bus.
WOW! What a find! This place should be world famous! There is a green bus on the side of the road in Papatowai in The Catlins and in it is the most amazing collection of recycled junk mechanical art contraptions ever! It is a wonderland of bizzare and unique creations.
There are handmade automata and curios that are both artistic and very very funny. Be sure to go up the back into the garden/gallery/theatre where the artist keeps all the best stuff IT IS AMAZING!!
Incredible interactive art!
Amazing inventions, great fun.
Blair is a genius. A free taster of his artistic wizardry in the bus, then $5 to visit the "theatre"-well worth every cent! If you like art you are allowed to touch, this is the place.
Very good and interesting. Excellent value for money. Will most likely go again.
Very funny and unusual experience.
Lots of funny stuff, have to see it.
I cannot say anything it will take the surprise away!
An amazingly constructed gallery (free) and theatre ($5) of recycled junk. Friendly, humourous, good value, positive ethos and spirit.
A MUST SEE!!!!!!!!
It looks all cool from the outside, but it's 100x better then this. It's amazing! The creativity and the humor!
Make sure to pay the small fee (and sponsor this amazing never-ending project) to enter the garden. If you liked the bus, you'll LOVE it in the garden :)
This is surely a New Zealand treasure. We stumbled across this bus that is run by an interesting local person and were astounded by his creations.
A little known attraction in a little known location. A mixture of kiwi do it yourself and x factor artistry. One out of the box and really worth a look.
This place is a must if on a trip through the Catlins. A fun and quirky experience that left me with a smile for the rest of the day. The simplicity and creativity of the owner's creations never failed to amuse me. We also paid into the $5 "theatre" and this was much the same experience. The $5 is defo worth it if only to give the owner some payback for his effort.
Green bus with many little crazy creations inside. Bus is free to get in. The gardens have all sorts of other funny things to see - only $5 - don't miss this place!!
