* collections of more than 20,000 trees and shrubs located in:
o a fernery and native NZ bush gullies
o American, Latin American, Asian, and Australian sections
o a rock garden of succulents and cacti
* all weather walking track, ample parking, bus bay
* most sections are accessible by wheelchair- advice should be sought ahead by ringing first (07) 824-0733

The Art-in-Nature Arboretum Trust runs the park and holds successive events including sculpture exhibitions.
