“You can’t grow that here!” Trees from warmer places plus tamarillo and avocados grow in this Otago Peninsula micro-climate oasis.
Two guided tours 10am-11.30am and 1pm-2.30pm

The garden tour features regenerating forest with original mature rimu and pokaka trees, productive vegetable garden, rare exotics and a valley of Gondwana plants. Visit the stunning and diverse Hereweka Garden that is an oasis nestled in a valley on the flanks of Hereweka (Harbour Cone).

“There was a stand of rimu, the most significant stand of bush on the peninsula. It was grazed and dying back so we put a QEII covenant on it and there are about 70 rimu there now.” Peter Cooke

Peter is particularly proud of his Gondwana garden where he has planted species from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Lord Howe Island and South America. These include tree ferns, podocarps, cordylines, araucarias and a huge African dandelion.

We suggest you car pool to the property because parking is limited.

The $10 charge will assist with ongoing maintenance of the garden. Maximum 16 people per tour.

Cost: $10/adult, children free
