Welcome to the #JandalOnTheMandel promotion page. This promotion aims to give visitors to the Jandal many reasons, not only to enjoy the Jandal artwork but to stay a little longer in Thames and the Thames Coast to discover our little piece of paradise.

The Jandal is part of the Hauraki Rail Trail and was the winner of the utilitarian section of the Thames Public Art Trust’s Open Sculpture Design Competition in 2017. The category called for sculptural works with a practical purpose for people using the Hauraki Rail Trail. The Thames Public Art Trust provides many opportunities to enjoy works of art in public spaces. The Jandal sculpture was made by renowned artist, Ricks Terstappen, whose many works are on display throughout the country.
