Owner description: Explore an enchanting world of secret gardens. Transport yourself through time and to far-flung corners of the world. Meander through a lush tropical jungle, visit ancient China and indulge yourself in a Renaissance Prince's 16th century garden. Five garden collections have been created to delight the senses, with some garden concepts reaching back 4,000 years. Hamilton Gardens is a conceptual garden based in the Waikato that explores the context, history and meaning of gardens through time, and from around the world. It is internationally recognised for its unique concept and is the Waikato region's most popular tourist destination. Only five minutes drive from Hamilton's CBD, the Gardens is open 7 days a week during daylight hours and entry and parking is free. Access is off SH1, alongside Cobham Drive on the southern side of Hamilton.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 19 March 2017

Really nice garden. Many different sections, really nice to walk around. They took really great care of their gardens, a lot of bees which mean a good eco system. Many different varieties and arrangements. Really beautiful.

“Fantastic Gardens”
Reviewed 19 March 2017

This is a fabulous place to visit, you can make a whole day of it looking around the various themed gardens. We were lucky to have a beautiful day and spent quite a while there. Unfortunately we were just passing through as I know we could easily have spent longer. Absolutely loved it, great place for taking the family.

Reviewed 18 March 2017 via mobile

Never knew this garden existed and had previously lived near by. It is such a great place to bring family to, lovely to walk around, tranquil & so well designed. I can't wait to see the new gardens when I am next in NZ. So lucky to have this beautiful garden to enjoy anytime you wasn't. Well done Hamilton

“Inner city haven”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 via mobile

This site is constantly being developed and improved. Located between the main highway and the waikato river this an amazing diverse series of formal and unstructured gardens. Runners and walkers will love the trails and paths to explore. A low several hours if you want to see much of it.
