Wharerata Gardens

Parts of this garden date back over a century and are tended by a team of expert horticulturalists.


Escape to another world, one bedecked with roses, camellias, rhododendrons and a sunken garden. A wisteria-festooned veranda and balustrade, acres of manicured formal lawns edged with colourful cottage flower beds – it’s a lovely backdrop to any event, and a picture-perfect location for any style of outdoor (and indoor) wedding.
