No map to take with you, pay in an honesty box. They lay out is not well sign posted. Got lost a few times. If you had a map and the layout was well done it would be ok. More for children I think.

We were disappointed, quirky yes but we were expecting more. The description gave the impression of garden rooms not an old shopping centre ride. It was a stunning dY with beautiful views but would not recommend.

The gardens and buildings are starting to look a bit worn and tired but it was still an afternoon of adventure for our kids, aged 6&3, who loved trying to seek out all the little buildings and sculptures. Would have been great in its prime....More

This walk is a short drive from Tauranga, just outside of Te Puke. It is a gorgeous garden in its own right, but the fun thing for kids is all the storybook characters spread around it! Look for the three little pigs houses, tweedle dee...More

Quite a long walk involved, no flowers to see which was disappointing. No cafe:>( Pathways well maintained and the map came in very handy!

We arrived not knowing you needed cash, but the lovely elderly lady who owns the place let us in for the change we had telling us stories of the garden and how her parents got to NZ many moons ago. My two kids aged 3...More
