Taranaki Garden Festival

29. Ngā Manu Garden

40 Manu Crescent, Upper Vogeltown, 4310

Ngā Manu (Bird Garden) has an excellent variety of plantings, including a 40-year old male giant ginkgo tree, a variety of camellia trees, hydrangeas and rhododendrons, much to the delight of the resident native birdlife which inspired the garden's name.

Corokia hedging and columnar golden beech trees create a sleek entrance into the Michael Mansvelt-designed urban garden, while a water feature, cycad palms and tropical plantings complement the modern garden office pod.  Michelia trees grace the boundary fence with a rose arch, NZ native ferns, heliotrope and lush green lawns throughout the garden. Off-road parking available.

Garden tickets are no longer available to purchase online. You can purchase garden tickets during the festival from the garden gates, our Festival Hub or from any of our ticket outlets.
