Taranaki Garden Festival

11. Puketarata Garden

14 Ngawhini Road, Hāwera, 4674

A country garden folding quietly around its hilltop site, with mountain and inland Taranaki views. Generous herbaceous plantings, lawn tennis court, perennial border, orchard, berry house, vegetable garden, enhanced by the wider landscape. Natives skilfully blended with exotic varieties giving seasonal variety, is a particular strength.

Adjacent to the outer ramparts of 400-year-old Puketarata Pā and Kāinga Keteonatea, both having major significance to the area. The gully below has a QEII Covenant, with natives, exotics and walking tracks. Complimentary tea/coffee available and family picnics welcome. Featured in the NZ Gardener Magazine.

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.
