We're delighted to welcome you to

Hurunui Garden Festival 2020

Due to Covid-19 disruptions our website updates are in the process of being completed.

We wish to announce that there are new gardens in the Amberley Cluster.

We have created a new Waipara Gorge Cluster with 2 new gardens and a Tour (Mysteries of the Waipara Gorge )

Hawarden-Waikari Cluster has 1 new garden

From Thursday 29 October to Sunday 1 November you can visit inspirational  private gardens from Amberley to Gore Bay, and Hawarden to Hanmer Springs, many within just one hour’s drive of Christchurch and the airport.

While you’re enjoying our interesting gardens and warm country hospitality, we hope you’ll sample our hot pools, wineries, cafes, and the many natural attractions that make Hurunui District such a great place to visit.

Come and join us for an inspiring  weekend in our private gardens of the Hurunui.

It’s easy to

Visit The Gardens

The gardens are arranged into geographically based clusters, making it easy for you to plan your visit to multiple gardens. Each cluster has its own detailed map, showing you the precise location of the gardens, along with useful information, such as the locations of public toilets, accommodation, petrol and diesel stations, and food outlets.
