Rapaura Springs Garden Marlborough, the nationally renowned garden festival, was dreamt up by gardeners for gardeners. A celebration of Marlborough's stunning landscape, it showcases the very best the region has to offer with garden tours, garden themed workshops and social events.
The full-day and half-day garden tours encompass everything from compact designer gardens in the heart of town to breath-taking country estates. Take the opportunity to brush up on your skills and horticultural knowledge by learning from New Zealand and international experts.
Mingle with like-minded gardeners and our guest speakers at the Garden Party held on the Saturday night.
The festival culminates on the Sunday with the Stihl Shop Garden Fête with over 200 stall holders offering the very best New Zealand produce. Entrance to the Fête is free so bring the family and enjoy a full day's entertainment.
With the stunning Marlborough Sounds on its doorstep, rugged mountain ranges, fertile plains and world class Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough has a lot to offer – so stay for the whole weekend, or longer! This year New Zealand’s premier garden event runs from 7-10 November.
