Hamilton Gardens - Daily Guided Tour

Discover how a community has transformed a rubbish dump into an award-winning garden.

Hamilton Gardens is the Waikato’s most popular attraction with approximately one million visitors each year. Our experienced guides share the ‘inside story’ on a journey of discovery along paths delivering mysterious surprises: step from a peaceful Japanese Garden of Contemplation into the grandeur of our Italian Renaissance Garden, before being enthralled by the vibrant colour of the Indian Char Bagh Garden or the quirky Surrealist Garden where everything is five times life size.
