Taranaki Garden Festival

41. The Galleys Garden

500 Richmond Road, Lepperton, 4373

Through the canopy entrance of 20-year-old prunus, michelia are underplanted with ivy to give structure. This property was purchased 4 ½ years ago and owners have since transformed this mature garden with palms, varieties of fern, bromeliads, and natives. Bring the kids to the wetlands garden, home to six large turtles. Stand there quietly to see their heads pop out of the water.

The large bug retreat will also ignite their imagination. Meandering paths edged with liriope lead through woodlands plantings. Past the gleditsia is the enclosed potager patch with espalier fruit trees and an antique water feature. Here you will discover the Galleys' passion for growing unusual edible delicacies.  

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.
