Opening the gates to some of Martinborough’s most extraordinary houses and gardens, this tour offers something for all. From an historic homestead to the cutting edge of modern design, rose-filled borders to productive veggie gardens, plus magnificent artwork inside and out. Each property – some never open to the public before – has its own charm. You'll walk away with plenty of inspiring ideas.
Thanks to generous home owners, you can visit 11 properties on this one-day, self-drive tour. Each will feature a stall run by a local craftsperson, selling everything from handcrafted crystal to local honey.
Buy your ticket only through www.eventfinda.co.nz. Bring your ticket to pick up your brochure, including a free map, and wristband, from our stand at Memorial Square, Martinborough from 9.00am – 11.00am, 23 November.
Most properties are in and around the village – the furthest house is just 12km away. For most, both house and garden are open to ticketholders; for a few properties, the focus is either on the garden only or the house only.
Grab your friends, and make a fun day of it. Drop into one of Martinborough’s cafes for lunch, coffee or a glass of wine. A guide to local eateries will be included in the brochure.
All proceeds from the tour go to Wharekaka, Martinborough’s own aged care facility. Near the heart of the village, it is very much a part of our caring community.
The tour would not be possible without the generous contribution of local sponsors Mitre 10, Susan Stephen & Co Realty, Peonies of Martinborough and The Martinborough Bookshop.
Get in quick – a limited number of reduced price Earlybird tickets are available. General admission sales begin as soon as Earlybirds sell out. Ticket sales only through www.eventfinda.co.nz. There will be no ticket sales on the day of the tour (23 November).
