Eden Garden, Epsom

4.2
#34 of 133 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 .

  • A lovely spot, gorgeous well maintained gardens with lots of paths to explore. Looking forward to going back for high tea at the cafe.
  • A beautiful place to visit. A well maintained garden grown in an old quarry. Many paths and turns. Get lost in nature.
  • Awesome place to go and enjoy the peace
  • Always good for an interesting walk around a quarry.
  • Relaxing, peaceful, great coffee. Nice place for family or wanting to unplug and get some nature, recommend if you have a hangover! Take insect repellent
