Formerly the Taranaki Rhododendron & Garden Festival, New Zealand’s premier Spring Festival is now in its 36th year, and it is one of the longest running garden festivals in New Zealand.
Our tour programme features a range of gardens from large private country estates to small city gardens. This tour travels further south to include Cross Hills Gardens – New Zealand’s largest and most comprehensive collection of flowering rhododendrons and azaleas.

There is 3 nights in New Plymouth for two full days of garden visits, one night in Palmerston North where we visit Cross Hills Rhododendron Garden and a night in Taupo. The tour returns to Auckland Friday 3rd November at approximately 5.30pm.
