The big exciting news is that Patrick and Lily are the new owners of the Watergardens and they have already made some wonderful changes so do visit and catch up with what is happening and give them your support.     There is now an impressive display of sculptures placed within the gardens.

Malcolm and Dael Wright wish to thank all past visitors to the gardens for their wonderful support and encouragement over the years.     We will still be growing waterlilies and lotus and Chris will be supplying nurseries and mail orders with aquatics, waterlililes and lotus plants plus the tropical waterlily cut flowers and lotus pods in season.

A unique watergarden located 45 minutes south of Auckland city. Ponds, gardens and pathways surround the historic Mauku Waterfall and rock quarry.The garden is a beautiful location for garden visits, weddings, special occasions and celebrations.   There are many sculptures installed this year.

Cafe is re-openning now.

A garden nursery and gift shop.

For the Kids

The gardens are a great place for a family day out. Kids especially love our turtle colony and the eel pond! Due to height and water hazards, children must be supervised by an adult at all times.

For the Dogs

We warmly invite you to bring your dog out to enjoy the gardens with you. We ask that you bring a leash and clean up any mess the dog may make.
