A fantastic place. Love that it replaced a former landfill site. It's great for a walk before or after stopping in at the lovely cafe. Dog and child friendly areas. The sculpture and other events they hold are always worth a visit.
I was once lucky enough to visit on a day they were having a plant sale. Great prices and advice, the cranberry bush I bought was a third of the cost of a garden centre and thrives three years on.
Love this place, highly recommended!
Oh how I love this place. Amazing gardens to view (I love the veggie gardens), a huge range of exotic plants and trees (Piranha Pines are my favourite) and the BEST reference library I've ever been to. I love looking through all the herbalist books. The lovely lady who is at the library on a sunday is so helpful and really knows her stuff. Cafe is a bit over priced and always busy, however.
Beautiful location for a family stroll. Spring time and the blossoms are gorgeous. We bought a takeaway coffee from the cafe for our walk and finished off back at the cafe for lunch. Information desk attendant was friendly and only too happy to show me on the user guide some points of interest. Clean toilets located at various points around the gardens. Plenty of parking, we found a car park relatively easily at 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday, on our way out at 12:30 drivers were waiting for car parks.
Auckland's botanic gardens. Quite big and a huge expanse, something different blooming everytime. Good for a weekend afternoon and stroller friendly. There are sometimes musicians and train rides. Relatively flat and not that big when you have gotten used to it.
Pictureque iconic experience for all visitors. Even in winter this place was stunning. It is so well kept. The roses are my favourite but really it's a wondeful palce to spend an entire day. The cafe is great - really good food and coffee. gets very busy as this is a must for huge numbers of tourists.
This is a very beautiful place to visit even in winter. Really cool children's garden with lots of things to discover. Its a good place to bring your dog for a walk with a nice big off leash section. Nice cafe and they even have bowls of water for the dogs.
