  • An amazing place for relaxing, plenty of local and exotic plants
  • Gotta try the sandwich place at the parking lot. Sandwich shop closed at 3 but the gardens close at 5
  • Attractive gardens created by local volunteers on the site of an old quarry.
  • Everyone should visit this gorgeous sanctuary tucked into the hills of Whangarei - great for plant lovers, walkers, tourists and people just needing a break in their journey.
