The green hills and fertile soil of the Hamilton - Waikato region is home to a collection of stunning gardens and passionate green-fingered locals.

The Hamilton Gardens is a must-see for those passionate about all things botanical. With a focus on having a story for each of the collections, enjoy themed gardens from Japan, Italy, America and more.  

You'll find New Zealand's only tea plantation in this region - enjoy a stroll through the plantations and a light lunch or high tea. Smaller, boutique gardens are situated in the countryside and feature everything from lavender fields and sculpture gardens to native bush and more.
