Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

19. Somewhere Over the Rainbow

26 Mayfair Pl
At the end of this cul-de-sac lies a hidden garden. From structured planting at the front, explore the slopes of perennials, tree ferns and bromeliads before stepping down to a secluded native bush walk. A distinctive house, designed by Roger Walker in 1979, looks out over this quirky garden which is completed by selected artworks.

7. Frog Lodge

Frog Lodge will not be opening this year.
David and Noeline Sampson have made the right decision for their family not to open for the festival. David suffered major injuries after a fall last month, which caused serious damage to both legs. He is still on the long road to recovery. I’m sure you will all agree with us, this is the right move but a very sad one.

We wish him a full recovery. Read More >
