Well worth putting Eastwoodhill on your things to do list ...Suggest you book the golf cart tour as you see lots more than if you just walked around

We stopped in and enjoyed several hours of gentle walks in a beautiful picturesque setting. Kids loved the playground and loved all thyr different trees and flowers, bridges and walkways. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours.

This place deserves more visitors and is really worth the drive from Gisborne. It was our second visit and this time we had the guided tour which was a bargain. We found out plenty about the history and organisation, as well as lots of stuff about the trees. Also the shop there has a really interesting selection of items.

We were probably a couple of weeks too late for Autumn colors. That did not spoil a very relaxing stroll. Plenty of different tree specimens. An informative map issued on arrival, we then just wandered. Will return to view late spring.

Although there were places in this amazing arboretum where signage could have been more explicit and therefore less confusing, we enjoyed our visit there. Taking our picnic meant we were able to choose one of the pretty spots to take in the leafy ambience at the same time. Getting there from Gisborne was easily achieved thanks to clear road signs. Very worthwhile doing one of the longer walks too.
