Located 20 minutes drive from the hotel in Manurewa, is the Auckland Botanic Gardens. Covering 64 hectares with over 10,000 plants, a stunning collection of native and exotic gardens that thrive in the Sub-tropical Auckland region. The award winning gardens have something for everyone to enjoy, from the Gondwana Arboretum, the interactive Potters Children’s Garden to the Threatened Native Plant Garden.
A great way to get around and see everything is to take a ride on the Wiri Rambler which runs every Sunday and on public holidays (weather dependant) from 12 noon until 3pm (12.30pm until 3pm in Autumn and Winter). Free entry.
