Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

Birdsong Retreat

A mystic Redwood forest, an English country garden and exotic waterlily ponds, this magnificent space has much to offer. Festival goers can wander through the many pathways and discover ancient willow trees, an abundance of roses, a small vineyard and olive trees, or just take a seat on the island to watch the ducks go by and spot Bob the eel. A mix of old world charm set amongst the native forest will be sure to tempt many.
