This garden is amazing. It's probably not the biggest i've ever been to but you can spend quite some time here. All areas of the garden have different themes and there are a few bird aviaries.

Nice little spot to visits to have a rest or kill some time, Chinese gardens are especially beautiful. Well worth a little visit to see the gardens.

Very nice area. Oamaru is great for day excursion trips from Dunedin. A lovely old town. A lot of history.

New Zealand is full of wonderful gardens and these are among the best we have visited to date. There are a number of different garden styles and some great sculpture throughout the gardens, and we enjoyed strolling through here each day.
