Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

Barnes Garden

This garden has evolved over the last 39 years to encompass a large variety of texture and colour combinations. Tropicals, natives, shrubs and roses are interwoven to create a peaceful yet vibrant garden. The house was built in the early 1940s and an original apple tree still remains. A large dragon tree, frangipani, olive and puka add to the tropical atmosphere.
