Eden Garden, Epsom

(4.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I was expecting to find a small and interesting garden on different levels up and down an old quarry site. It is that with meandering paths. It is quiet, leafy and green. It is inadequately signposted...  more »
  • A small but perfectly formed hidden garden - a lovely retreat from the city, nice cafe & shop too.Accessible by public transport & could be combined with a visit to Mount Eden itself. 
  • This is a lovely little garden with beautiful examples of the native plants and flowers. There is also a lovely view of the harbor from the top of the garden as well as a lovely little cafe.

  • A tranquil escape from the city. Allow at least an hour. Auckland's Hop On Hop Off bus stops there!
  • Lovely garden for a nice walk. Coffee in the cafe is nice & strong.
  • Nothing to see at this time of year. End of May. Might be a pleasantly shady and cool place in summer.
  • Garden of Eden, an oasis, quiet & peaceful. Good food when the cafe is open too.
  • Tended with love, although I would consider it mire of an inward looking garden, despite the views.
