Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

The Sheltered Valley

This mature terraced garden features a large stone staircase and stonewalls that divide the garden and create many levels. It’s a sustainable garden offering a surprise around every corner. Just follow meandering pathways to discover an enclosed berry garden, espaliered fruit trees, avenues of avocados, and native plantings. Enjoy the intimate seating areas and perhaps be entertained by the Kaka who frequently visit the large gum trees.
