Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you have 20-30 minutes to spare, its a nice enough garden. The walking track is well made, and the view from the deck is quite pretty. Just don't compare this short walk with the other walks in Rakiura.

Garden is full of native plants with several paths to walk along. There is a covered picnic table area, toilets and don't miss the viewing platform with great view towards Oban. We saw kaka, mohua there as well.

This was walking distance from our bach, lovely place to visit and great range of plants. Allegedly kiwi can be seen here at night, we were not lucky sadly but spoke to others who had seen them here.

A small slice of nature therapy. A well thought out and well laid out garden, with very informative signage and info panels. A great way to start a Stewart Island holiday

Bit disappointing!! Not maintained that well we thought, and believe the general bush on local walks gives a much better feel of what grows in the area

A beautiful walk to an amazing garden. The history of a lady that followed her heart and her dreams. A must do.

A lovely relaxing spot where it is easy to do a quick 15 minute look around or spend 2-3 hours relaxing and exploring. Lookout view over Halfmoon Bay; fernery; alpine plants; coastal section... From the minute to the magnificent, there are many NZ native plants to enjoy as a result of the forward-thinking conservative work of the founder, and the present-day update. Moturau Moana interprets as "Islands of bush above the sea". Handicapped-friendly toilet on site, near to the small carpark (off Braggs Rd) and shelter. Enjoy - we and the native birds did (Kereru, Tui and Kaka all witnessed close up)!
