This year we offer you an intriguing mixture of both unique and stunning gardens, each with their own story to tell.  During the festival we have jam packed a mixture of free and paid events that will cater to your individual palette be it a family outing or wine on your mind.

Our regions public gardens are our festival gems, but it’s our private gardens open exclusively for the 10 days of the festival that are a must see.  Self drive around our majestic maunga (mountain) and explore the beauty of our region.
