Botanic Gardens Review

Relax and enjoy the birdsong amid 70 acres of international and native flora. In addition to the seasonal gardens with their 6,800 plant species are the year-round attractions: an aviary, a winter garden hothouse, a native plant collection, and a rhododendron garden. Parking at the lower part of the gardens, off Cumberland Street, has easier access than the Opoho end, which is steeper, but both parts are worth visiting.
