This is a must if you like a walk around bush paths and enjoy the beauty of trees and flowers. Volunteers have been planting up and maintaining this garden since the mid 1960's. It is truly a wonderful place. A must for a free activity. You can even pay some money to buy a tree to support the superb garden area.

Great place to visit, gardens and tracks are well kept, kids ruining the tranquility with joyful shouts and screams everytime they found a painted rock, fairy door or treasure box.

Easy place for a hungover mum or dad to pass them delicate early hours away with the kids. 😅

Great views and lovely sounding wildlife. Lots of friendly fantails buzzing around too.

Make sure you chuck a quick fiver/tenner in the donation boxes too to help with the upkeep of this great little venue.

We had the most enjoyable time walking around the garden, we parked in the first car park and followed the sealed road around and took the paths off to the side. We were there in September and the colours were amazing. In Taupo there was quite a cold breeze blowing but the gardens were sheltered so good spot to go when the wind is up. We will definitely go back.

What a lovely place to visit - and it’s remarkable that it is largely maintained by volunteers. The grounds are so tranquil, with lovely walking trails and paths. Some areas are planted formally with camellias and azaleas and there are rhododendrons throughout the lovely green surroundings. In other areas there are open parks and lush bush. Birdlife is abundant too. There is a sealed road you can use if you have any mobility issues, which will still give you a lovely appreciation of the area. I visited first thing in the morning, the garden is open from 8am, and the birdsong was just wonderful. It’s a lovely spot for contemplation - although you do notice nearby road noise from time to time, depending where you are in the garden. It’s a lovely place, well done to the group who gives their time to make it stay beautiful, thank you.

What a delightful setting, with plenty of spots to stop and park the car, lovely seating in tranquil areas, and, at this time of the year stunning rhododendron and azalea to see

I would highly recommend the Waipahihi Gardens if your looking to go for a stroll in the area.
These are well maintained and well laid out, I would say it is a great place to go for a walk anytime of the year.

We were driving past entry of Botanical Gardens and thought let's drive-through, this was well worth the effort, and feel everybody would find it interesting if you enjoy nature, etc.
