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.

Loved the parts we got time to see, will definitely go back to see the rest! The fantasy gardens are a must see, in particular the Italian & Tudor gardens, they are magical! So special, what an amazing place.

“Brilliant”

Hamilton Gardens are great, ideal for couples, friends, families. The vast area of grouped gardens are amazing, plenty of room for the children to play and space for couples to be alone.

“Beautiful!”

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.
