November 28, 2020

Event Date TBC

Unfortunately this event has to be cancelled due to COVID-19, but please stay tuned for Garden Tour 2021 and a potential smaller scale garden event for 2020.

This is a unique opportunity to view a variety of residential gardens on the Island. The guided tours will enable you to visit charming cottage gardens, to see spectacular coastal panoramas and experience the hidden native flora and birdlife. The ticket includes tour transportation, a scrumptious Morning Tea and a charming Devonshire Afternoon Tea.

The Garden Tour is a major fundraiser for theĀ Great Barrier Island Community Health TrustĀ to purchase equipment for use on the Island. The event involves many 100’s of hours of community volunteer time and energy and the participant feedback has been outstanding. It has become a very popular event and national and international celebrities who have participated in the past tours, quote that it is ‘a must-do event’ for every keen gardener.
