Hamilton Botanic Gardens

The botanical gardens at Hamilton are simply stunning. It is separated into garden rooms, each of which is an exceptional example of the style it represents.

There’s a Japanese garden of reflection, a Chinese garden of scholars, a colourful Indian garden complete with slightly off-white buildings, a structural Italian Renaissance garden, a controlled jungle tropical garden, vegetable gardens, a traditional Maori vegetable and kumera garden, and a rose garden that must smell amazing in spring.

Entry is free though a donation is appreciated for the upkeep and further development of the property.
