Whether you want to stop in for an hour or a day, there is something for everyone at Hamilton Gardens. Explore the stunning Paradise Garden Collection, visit Te Parapara – New Zealand’s first traditional Maori garden, picnic with the family or catch one of the many exciting events staged here each year.
Hamilton Gardens is a conceptual garden based in the Waikato that explores the context, history and meaning of gardens through time, and from around the world. It is internationally recognised for its unique concept and is the Waikato’s most visited tourist destination.
Guided tours at Hamilton Gardens transport visitors through time and to far-flung corners of the world. Be guided through a lush tropical jungle, visit ancient China or enjoy the splendour of a Renaissance Prince’s 16th century garden. Around every corner there is something different, something to delight.
Our experienced guides will enthral visitors with the inside ‘story’of the Gardens, and how the gardens have been transformed from a humble rubbish dump to an internationally significant garden.
