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.

“Hamilton gardens ”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 via mobile

Lovely day out, spent 3 hours wandering through the amazing gardens, even though it poured with rain on and off that did not spoil the visit. Lovely food available in the cafe as well. Also no entrance fee just donations which was a bonus.

Do not rush your visit. It is worth exploring all the garden and taking a picnic. You will need good weather.

“Well done Hamilton City Council ”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 via mobile

Our overseas friends were amazed. The gardens are amazing. You can easily spend a half day ambling around.
We have also taken friends from Christchurch to the gardens because friends of theirs recommended they visit. They weren't disappointed.
