Thank you to our 2019 gardeners and visitors we are looking forward to seeing you during our 2020 garden festival!
Tūpare is an Arts and Crafts-inspired property established in 1932 by the Matthews family. Sculpted into a hillside above the Waiwhakaiho River, it features a Chapman-Taylor house set in grounds with secluded garden rooms, elegant borders and majestic trees.
There are free guided walks at 2pm daily during the festival and free house tours half-hourly from 10am to 12.30pm. Guided walks at other times may be booked on the website for a fee. The mobility vehicle runs before and after each house tour. Please let us know if you’re bringing a large group during this busy time.
Tūpare is open all day, every day and entry is free. It’s owned and managed by the Taranaki Regional Council.
