Eden Garden is located in Mt. Eden, Auckland and is set in 2 hectares of former quarry land. It was established in 1964 and is open to the public for an admission fee. Eden Garden was donated to the people of New Zealand in 1965 and is managed by The Eden Garden Society, Inc., a not-for-profit society. The garden’s many collections of plants include what is reputed to be the largest collection of camellias in New Zealand.
It’s Auckland’s best-kept secret. A tranquil garden oasis that has transformed an old quarry. Take an hour or a day to explore the many plant collections which include Vireyas, hibiscus, magnolias, acres, plus native trees and bush. There’s always something in bloom. Enjoy the spectacular tulips in spring, waterfalls, rock formations, resident native birds and fabulous city and harbour views.
Admission to Garden and Cafe is $8 per adult, $6 for NZ senior citizens and students, children under 12 are free.
