A masterpiece of a bygone era.
Woodlands features a large colonial dwelling constructed in 1872 as a manager's residence for a 98,000 acre estate. It has been lovingly restored to its original grace and charm and is surrounded today by 15 acres of gardens.
The estate highlights the radical transformation of the low-lying Waikato landscape after the third New Zealand (or Waikato) War.
Experience a journey into history and appreciate the timeless beauty and refinement of early Victorian lifestyle in rural New Zealand.
Woodlands Estate is open daily 10-4pm, while the gardens are free, there is a $2 entry fee for the Homestead.
Relax and enjoy the Estate's licensed cafe open from 9am, weekend bookings recommended.
