Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

Tui Paradise

There’s much to delight at this garden with its mature natives, a stunning tidal estuary backdrop and innovative landscape that offers interest regardless of the season. The garden with its exotic tropical vibe is home to monarch butterflies and a strong tui presence – there’s birdsong from dawn to dusk. The outdoor room is blissful all year and an atmospheric spot to enjoy at night. Plantings include magnolia, camellia, hibiscus, gardenia, wisteria, bromeliads, cycad, maple, alstroemeria and taro, for example.
