Lets head across to the west to visit two wonderful garden displays, one of which is the most visited in the Waikato.
Join us and explore the glorious gardens of the Waikato on our trip across the Kaimais and on through the lush farmland this region used extensively for milk production and also home to the many famous race horse breeders and studs.
Before we explore our first garden today we make a stop for morning tea at a popular local café. Then it’s time to enjoy the sprawling Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru Arboretum – 17.5 hectares of transformed quarry which is now home to over 20,000 trees and more than 100 sculptures, though we may not get to see every one today!
Next, it is on to Hamilton Gardens – the Waikato’s most visited tourist attraction. This 54 hectare public park occupies a grand location overlooking the Waikato River. Admire the stunning variety of themed gardens, as well popular features such as the rose garden, rhododendron lawn and woodland walk.
There is also a wonderful café on site if you fancy a bite to eat (your cost) before we head back home to Tauranga.
Inclusions: Morning Tea & Entry to the Sculpture Garden.
