Garden Tour: Self-guided tour includes beautifully illustrated Kerikeri Mission Station Garden Tour Booklet - $10.00 per booklet. (Available from the Stone Store Retail Shop).


Cultivated for over 200 years, layers of history are revealed as you explore New Zealand’s oldest European gardens. Māori gardens were lying fallow when missionaries arrived in 1819 to form a new mission settlement at Kerikeri. Overseen by Ngapuhi chief Hongi Hika, from his Pa Kororipo, the fledgling settlement came to rely heavily on the gardens as a vital source of food when the missionaries refused to trade in guns with Hongi. Using seed and rootstock brought with them from England, the missionaries created gardens that represented their beliefs, heritage and connection with the land.
