Enjoy this garden paradise on the slopes of Mount Eden, built in the 1960s on what was once a rubbish filled, abandoned quarry. The garden now displays one of the largest collections of camellias in new Zealand. Whatever the season, there's always color and blooms of native plants. Lovely views of the city and harbor; a casual cafe offers lunch and afternoon tea. All items are made on the premises from local, seasonal ingredients where possible. Support the garden with a purchase from the gift shop.
