Encounter the mystery and wonder at the beauty of a world-class rhododendron collection, uniquely set in rainforest. Pukeiti displays hundreds of varieties of rhododendrons as well as complementary native and exotic plantings. Rhododendron species and hybrids flaunt themselves during the long flowering season (July – March). To find a rhododendron flower any time of the year, follow the Rhododendron Stroll, starting in the undercover Vireya Walk.

Discover a historic waterwheel and wander the beautifully presented borders surrounding the Main Lawn. This is a place for children – there is intrigue, surprise and adventure. Pick up the Treehouse Trail map and follow the secret paths linking the treehouses, completing fun activities as you go.
