Hurunui Garden Festival 2019


Hurunui Garden Festival 2019

From Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd November you can visit gorgeous private gardens from Amberley to Gore Bay, Hawarden to Hanmer Springs, many within just one hour’s drive of Christchurch and the airport.

There’s also a programme of garden events to educate, entertain and inspire you. While you’re enjoying our gardens and warm country hospitality, we hope you’ll sample our wineries, cafes, and the natural attractions that make Hurunui District such a great place to visit.

There’s so much to experience and enjoy at the Garden Festival. We’re inviting you to join us for a weekend in the gorgeous gardens of the Hurunui.


Visit The Gardens

The gardens are arranged into geographically based clusters, making it easy for you to plan your visit to multiple gardens. Each cluster has its own detailed map, showing you the precise location of the gardens, along with useful information, such as the locations of public toilets, accommodation, petrol and diesel stations, and food outlets.


Greet You

All our gardens are open daily from 9am to 5pm on Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd November 2019. You can meet the garden owners and learn how they’ve created their gorgeous gardens.

It costs adults $10 to visit each garden, payable on the day as you enter the garden. Children accompanied by an adult may enter for free. Please have cash with you, as the gardens cannot process electronic payments. Online pre-purchase ticket sales will be available from July 2019.
