Thank you to our 2019 gardeners and visitors we are looking forward to seeing you during our 2020 garden festival!
Te Popo is a garden paradise set amongst 13 hectares of parkland with magnificent native trees, a 30m suspension
bridge, deep river gorges and birdsong as you stroll extensive forest trails. This Taranaki garden is magic for all the senses.
Exotic and coniferous trees create borders of every colour, form and shape, and the woodland features
a zoo of animal sculptures. Artist Janet Marshall will be painting in this idyllic setting during the garden festival
with artworks and gift pieces available to purchase. Accommodation and camping available, contact Amanda.
