Auckland Botanic Gardens


Gardens and Parks Attractions For Kids Points of Interest

If you prefer a more relaxing way to see the gardens, take a ride on the Wiri Rambler 'tractor train' that carries up to 16 passengers on a 30 minute tour. The train operates on Sundays (and Saturdays during the summer).

Spanning over 64 hectares, Auckland Botanic Gardens is a beautiful and tranquil setting that's home to well over 10,000 plants from across the world.

Auckland Botanic Gardens provide visitors with a chance to admire the rock garden, award winning roses, the spring blossom valley, and the New Zealand native plant collection, including threatened native plants.

The Botanic gardens offer help to visitors looking for inspiration for their own gardens, with impressive collections of ornamental plants on display. International interest has been captured with the wide range of displays of native and introduced plants.

The modern on site cafe is a chance to relax and enjoy the views overlooking the garden.

The Auckland Botanic Gardens are located 25 kilometres from downtown Auckland in Manurewa, South Auckland.
