Mid to late August is the time to see this garden at its best as there are several hillsides of daffodils - stunningly lovely! Listen to the many tui, admire and sniff the colourful magnolias, enjoy the quirky playhouses and figures from children's stories, appreciate the friendliness of your host...
No tearooms, though, so either pack a picnic or head into nearby Te Puke if you get thirsty!
Charges a modest entry fee.
Sadly, not a place for the unfit or disabled as paths are quite steep, and there are quite a few steps.Wear walking shoes and definitely take your camera.
Poorly signposted from main roads, but definitely worth going - we go almost every year.
