A beautiful hidden garden away from the hustle and bustle and on the side of Mt Eden. Many different flowers and trees to admire and enjoy with various paths to explore. Walk up to the lookouts for panoramic views over the city.

Where to find us

Getting here couldn't be simpler.  The beckoning calm of the front gate is just a fifteen minute walk from the hustle and bustle of Newmarket's shopping area.  We are a 12minute walk up from the Manakau Road with many bus stops.

The 'Auckland Hop on Hop Off Explorer' bus makes regular stops at the Garden.  Call them at freephone 0800 4 EXPLORER.

Other bus routes that are close to us, starting from the ferry terminal are the 321, and 295.

Plan your route with Auckland Transport.

We are a few minutes drive from the Gillies Avenue exit on the Southern Motorway and we have our own carpark for 60 cars.

Although we are on Mount Eden it is not possible to access Mount Maungawhau from the Garden.

Groups

Guided tours with a member of the garden staff can be arranged.  Please call the Visitor Centre at 09 638 8395 or email us for more information.

 

What to Expect

The central area is mostly flat for easy walking and wheelchair access.  Elsewhere, particularly on the edge of the old quarry, some paths are steep and rocky and suitable footwear should be worn.

Umbrellas and wheelchairs are available to borrow from the Visitor Centre.

There are many benches to rest upon and gazebos and shelters to sit in further up the hill.

Our lovely café offers a selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and wholesome lunches.
