Nice gardens to wander round, although it is large and lots to see. There was a land train going round offering commentary tours which is a more leisurely way to see the gardens, but no doubt comes at a cost. The gardens themselves are free. Definitely worth a visit if you have time.

The title of this review says it all, really.

Following is an assortment of words and phrases and sentences to describe some of the highlights.

Best heritage rose garden we've ever seen - and we've visited many around the world. It was the best time of year to see them. Colour. Rambling roses. Peonies. Clematis. Pure joy.

There's also a rose garden with more modern roses. Nicely laid out. Name boards. Pretty.

Water garden also excellent. Great gunnera.

Massive trunk eucalypts.

Conservatory in separate sections. Again, one of the better examples seen.

Gardens also have a restaurant, toilets, great gift shop, playground.

A stream running through. Punts.

Lots of pathways to explore.

A top place to visit.

One of the perfect Gardens in New Zealand. A magical place to wander and enjoy nature. Make sure to visit the rose garden, wander along the Avon river or picnic on the expansive lawns.
