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. Put Eden Garden into our Epsom trip itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Epsom.

  • We stopped at Eden Gardens on a hop on hop off tour & spent a very pleasant hour or so wandering through the charming gardens & having coffee & homemade eats at the little cafe. Worth a stop.

  • 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.
