No map to take with you, pay in an honesty box. They lay out is not well sign posted. Got lost a few times. If you had a map and the layout was well done it would be ok. More for children I think.

We were disappointed, quirky yes but we were expecting more. The description gave the impression of garden rooms not an old shopping centre ride. It was a stunning dY with beautiful views but would not recommend.

The gardens and buildings are starting to look a bit worn and tired but it was still an afternoon of adventure for our kids, aged 6&3, who loved trying to seek out all the little buildings and sculptures. Would have been great in its prime....More

This walk is a short drive from Tauranga, just outside of Te Puke. It is a gorgeous garden in its own right, but the fun thing for kids is all the storybook characters spread around it! Look for the three little pigs houses, tweedle dee...More
