This annual event is a chance for visitors to access some beautiful private gardens that are normally not open to the public. It is also a chance for visitors to discover not just secret gardens, but an area that could arguably be, Auckland’s best kept secret! These gardens have been painstakingly crafted over many years to create a living work of art, and to top it off, there is also art of the more traditional kind displayed in these gardens creating - a feast for the senses!
Within each garden between 12 and 2pm we have local musicians from Kaipara College, Massey High School and the local area. We also provide fresh food and beverage with proceeds going to local charity groups including Guides, Scouts, church groups, hospice and school PTA's.
One ticket delivers outstanding value and it's never been more cost effective to purchase than today, Early bird till the end of August 2012.
Kumeu and the surrounding district also offers a feast for the senses, we have a huge range of world-class food and wine attractions to appeal to all tastes, all within minutes of each other. Our most easily recognisable attraction is the wineries. We are blessed with the largest group of world-class wine producers within 30 minutes of Auckland city centre. But it doesn't end there, around the wine there are some top restaurants, bars and cafes, clustered around SH16 from Riverhead to Waimauku. Welcome to Auckland's 'Green Belt,' an appealing mix of rural charm with sophisticated food and wine, weekend markets, exciting food producers and wild West Coast regional parks with surfing, mountain biking, horse riding and other adventure sport destinations, throw in the historical town of Helensville 15 minutes north of Kumeu and you have enough to more than satisfy your senses!
