  • We stopped late in the afternoon on a sunny autumn day. There is a nominal fee to wonder the garden, but it was worth it. Although most of the lavender wasn't in bloom there was enough fall color to m...  more »
  • We spent hours checking out the animals, smelling the flowers, wandering amongst the beautifully kept gardens and playing the garden games. Wonderful for a $2 per adult entry!  more »
  • Don't make a special trip for it, but do stop in if you are passing by. It is a working farm, so treat the animals and plants with care. The garden couldn't be lovelier and is well worth the $3 admiss...  more »

  • Came during summer. Very nice place to wonder around and entry is relatively cheap. Plenty of photo ops! There’s a shop with lavender lotions/soaps/etc too if you’re into that kind of thing
  • I visited Wanaka Lavender Farm with my daughter in January 2017. It was the most charming place and I could have spent the whole day there. It was very clean and tidy and the lavender was in full bloom. There is a $2 donation box at the entrance to the gardens, we paid but some just walked in without donating. It was an overcast day with a gentle breeze and smell of the lavender was just lovely. The rose gardens were very nice too...lots of colour. There's a beautiful little shop with a cafe. They don't mind if you take photos inside but polite to ask first. All the staff were willing to chat and are very passionate and knowledgeable about their products. I will definitely go there again on my next visit to NZ.
  • A nice place to stop by and relax while enjoying lavender ice cream. There is access to the lavender plants and garden which is very beautiful. We visited in November, so most of the lavender plants are not in bloom. I have never seen so many bees and bumble bees in one place! It is really amazing to be able to observe them flying around the flowers. The bees do not care about people, so it is pretty safe.
  • Just a fantastic place to go and relax. So peaceful. We tried one of everything on offer from the food selection just because we couldn't decide and we were just blown away. Cake, chocolate, biscuit, ice cream, tea, everything made with love and full of lovely lavender flavour. We saw chickens, the pig, alpacas, yaks, and plenty of birds! Fair warning though, there are innumerable busy Bees doing their good work about the place but they don't bother you. Absolutely worth a visit for a peaceful step into tranquillity. Highly recommended.
  • Beautiful place with lavender, rose and animal :) enjoy my time here, sadly the lavender wasn’t blossom but did end up buying some lavender honey and enjoy lavender tea and manuka ice cream ! Will recommend this place to anyone.
