Step back in time and soak up summer's brilliance in the Village gardens, blooming with hollyhocks, hydrangeas and other cottage flowers! With plenty of room for distancing in the idyllic outdoor setting, make a day of it. Bring a picnic or pick-up something from the Homestead Café. Explore the heritage buildings and learn about the lives of early Auckland settlers.
