Eden Garden, Epsom

4.2
#35 of 132 in Parks in Auckland
Find yourself surrounded by colorful blossoms and fragrant blooms at Eden Garden, a 2.2 hectare (5.5 acre) award-winning garden. Stroll the paths to view its many plant collections including vireyas, camellias, bromeliads, perennials, and native New Zealand species. Thanks to the varying seasonality, you'll always find something in bloom here, plus waterfalls, rock formations, and plenty of resident native birds--all backed by views of the city and harbor. The garden was constructed at the site of an abandoned quarry, completed 45 years after a group of volunteers committed to doing so. Of particular mention is the its collection of vireya rhododendrons, which flower throughout the year. Make Eden Garden a part of your Epsom vacation plans using our Epsom tour builder website .

  • An absolute hidden treasure! Beautiful well-maintained expansive gardens tucked into the side of Mount Eden, this is the perfect place for an afternoon walk or just to grab a coffee and read a book. There's a $10 entry fee but it's worth every cent.
  • Interesting collections of plants. Built in a quarry so some of the paths are rather steep. Very pleasant cafe.
  • Beautiful location. The cafe is very pricey however the location is like no other...
  • Lovely to share beautiful gardens with the memories of our families.
  • A lovely oasis. Very steep paths.
