Hamilton Gardens

Explore an enchanting world of secret gardens.

Transport yourself through time and to far-flung corners of the world. Meander through a lush tropical jungle, visit ancient China and indulge yourself in a Renaissance Prince’s 16th century garden. Five garden collections have been created to delight the senses, with some garden concepts reaching back 4,000 years.

Hamilton Gardens is a conceptual garden based in the Waikato that explores the context, history and meaning of gardens through time, and from around the world. It is internationally recognised for its unique concept and is Waikato’s most popular tourist destination.

The unique concept of Hamilton Gardens is explored through a series of five garden collections.

• The Paradise Garden Collection featuring gardens representing some of the most significant garden design traditions.
• The Productive Garden Collection representing different aspects of the relationship between people and plants.
• The Fantasy Garden Collection representing different forms of garden fantasy.
• The Cultivar Garden Collection featuring the story of plants selected and bred for the garden.
• The Landscape Garden Collection with areas representing the different historic interpretations of an idealised landscape.

The gardens are a special place to visit at any time of the year. There are nearly 2000 events held within Hamilton Gardens each year.

Hamilton Gardens are home to a range of public art works, including a Waharoa (carved gateway). Artists represented include Diggeress Te Kanawa and Chris Booth.

Only five minutes drive from Hamilton’s CBD, the Gardens is open 7 days a week during daylight hours and entry and parking is free. Access is off SH1, alongside Cobham Drive on the southern side of Hamilton. Mobility scooters, wheelchairs and pushchairs are available to hire and guided tours are available.
