“Breathtaking views and beautiful plantings”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We took the cable car up to the entrance of the gardens and walked down. The couple with us had just arrived in NZ (we had been travelling for over 2 weeks). It was great to be able to show them examples of native plants and to see new things ourselves. We would have liked to have had more time to walk through everything. Highly recommended.

“A delight in the centre of the city”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

On a summy day nothing beats wondering around the gardens and stopping for a ice cream or a coffee. Lovely cafe in the beagonia house, very dog friendly

“beautifull”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

what a lovely way to spend an afternoon, wandering through the gardens. And what a great idea to have volunteers to give you a helping hand, and a map. A highlight of an amazing city.

“Best View of the City”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

The cable car takes you right here and there is a stunning view of the city as you first enter the gardens. The gardens are large and spread out. Its a bit of a walk and may be a bit hilly for some. The observatory is also located on these grounds so its worth the trip.
