It was the middle of August, we went to the Auckland botanic gardens, and saw the magnolia trees and some cherry trees which have started to blossom.

We were here last fall when there was a magnificent variety of sculptures on display. The gardens themselves are lovely and it was later in the day so it wasn't very crowded.

The Auckland gardens are simply wonderful, plenty to see throughout the gardens. I highly recommend the forest walks on the outsides edges.

The Auckland Botanic Gardens are well set out and easy to follow map can do a short loop if pressed for time. We were very impessed with the range of plantings. We were lucky to visit while Sculptures in the Garden were on exhibit there.
